9781482075571: Muddy-Fingered Midnights: poems for bright days and dark nights of the soul

This thirty-poem collection is an eclectic mix of light and dark, playful and spiritual, lyric and narrative free verse. In an intricate dance of sound play, it explores how our perceptions shape our interactions with the world. Here child heroes emerge on playgrounds and in chicken coops, teens grapple with grief and taste first love, adults waver between isolation and engaged connection. It is a book about creative life, our capacity to wound and heal, and the unlikely places we find love, beauty, and grace.

About the Author:

Laurel Garver is a magazine editor, poet, and author of the young adult novel Never Gone. Her poetry has appeared in Ancient Paths, Every Day Poets, Poetry Pact Volume 1, Rubber Lemon, Daily Love, Drown in My Own Fears, and About Such Things. An indie film enthusiast and incurable Anglophile, she lives in Philadelphia with her husband and daughter.

Review:

"Garver seamlessly integrates unpredictable rhyme and alliteration to undergird the themes and strange beauty of these poems. The collection explores moments of cowardice and melting purity, 'my only fruit / a cool ooze / that bubbles up / on blistering days,'  yet holds strongly onto faith as much as 'Yankee girl grit.' Even in dark times that are 'glassy with misery,' there's a hidden reflection in the pane: hope." --Jessica Bell, Vine Leaves Literary Journal
