NH Poetry: Memory Won't Save Me

Grace Mattern recommends Memory Won't Save Me by Mimi White (Deerbrook Editions).
"Mimi White's masterful use of the haibun form, a blending of prose and haiku, creates a powerful and exquisite rendering of her literal and emotional journey to be with her father at his death.  This book is a must-read both for its introduction to the haibun form, for those unfamiliar with it, and for its keenly observed details and layers of memory which so beautifully convey the difficult yet necessary passage of coming to terms with loss." --Grace Mattern
Grace Mattern spent 30 years as the Executive Director of the NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, a position she left in 2011 in order to devote more of her time to writing.  Her book The Truth About Death was published in 2012 by Turning Point Books.  She lives in Northwood, NH.

This post is part of our celebration of National Poetry Month 2013 for which I asked New Hampshire poets and booksellers to recommend books of poetry by Granite State poets. These titles are generally available from local booksellers and may be held in public libraries as well.
