Item description for What He Took (American Poets Continuum) by Wendy Mnookin...
Beginning with an auto accident that occurred during a family outing that took the life of Ms. Mnookin's father, the ensuing poems track the effect of that tragedy and loss, as the family heals from disaster, as the child grows up in a household with a stepfather and makes her uneasy way into adulthood, all under the shadow of a psychic uneasiness born of loss and impermanence.
Wendy Mnookin's poetry has received awards from journals including The Comstock Review, Kansas Quarterly and New Millennium Writings. She was a 1999 recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship. She teaches poetry in Boston.
