Enjoy the online version of Gigi Mark’s Shelter, winner of the 2010 Coal Hill Review Chapbook Prize.
“There is a quiet loveliness to these poems. Gigi Marks writes in a voice that almost sings, and with the simplest, gentlest words, of sheltering and being sheltered. With the graceful delicacy of her poems, Marks reminds us, gently and without sentimentality, of what’s truly important in our lives.”
“In a poem called ‘Born,’ Gigi Marks writes: ‘Because there are/ places that disappear, the ones that/ I go back to stand out in relief.’ These short but potent poems revisit such places with insight, emotional precision, and a true poet’s eye.”
