City Of Salt

Stark, chillingly beautiful poems that record the unraveling of a family and their doomed attempt, moving to another country, to rebuild.
Prairie Schooner

City of Salt, Gregory Orr’s sixth book of poems, is largely autobiographical and presents moments of intense emotion which are anchored in clearly dramatized events. These are poems of elegy and celebration, and of occasions where the two modes fuse in acts of redemptive imagination.
