Here’s what poet Steve Scafidi had to say about this book:
“Devin Kelly’s new book, In This Quiet Church of Night, I Say Amen, is astounding for its grace in language, its meditative rhythms and the story of love he tells in poem after poem where ‘beauty must follow beauty.’ Kelly has an exquisite ear and in these pages we find the rhythm of being here that is music. Fathers, brothers, friends, rivers and birds fly by ‘all so close to being illuminated, so close to being gone.’ Loss haunts every word of this book and makes the poems crackle with gratitude and wonder. His faith in the imagination is praise for the world he inhabits and his poems insist we are all here together. I don’t know a book I love more.”
We love this book & want to give it to you! So, what is your One Great Things recommendation?
