About this title


Poetry. HOMELESS AT HOME is a series of letters addressed to a deceased father whose life was shattered and fragmented by war, loss, and economic instability, and further splintered by generational strife and estrangement. With an emotionally complex voice that intercuts global events and personal history, these letters strive to speak with the father, to bring him up to date with "current" events and with the poetic life of the speaker. "Gloria Frym's HOMELESS AT HOME is an elevated triumph. A deeply moving, astutely passionate work of the highest integrity and poetic presence. These poems not only grieve the past that was and can never be, but focus with alacrity on present states of debris and possibility. Their measured rage and acceptance unfold a stately and alarming poetry, understated yet overt, compassionate yet resistant. A deeply intelligent work of profound demand and reward from a writer of immense principle and engagement" - David Meltzer.
