The Long Arc of Grief – Laura Schulkind

Finishing Line Press

Laura Schulkind’s new chapbook, The Long Arc of Grief, (Finishing Line Press) was released in August, 2019. This collection tells stories of grief impelled by the loss of her parents. It also move beyond her own grief, exploring how we support those we love in their grief, and ultimately how we all not merely carry on, but live.

Laura Schulkind‘s work radiates intelligence, compassion and a nuanced understanding of what it means to be a daughter, a mother and a friend. She’s a fearless truth-teller, shining the light of her poetic language on details we well might have missed otherwise–the small, miraculous moments of discovery, heartbreak and redemption.
Barbara Quick, Author of Vivald

Laura Schulkind’s new book, The Long Arc of Grief addresses the sorrow of loss and even the anxiety and sorrow of impending loss. But also present in these well-crafted and touching poems is great affection and devotion, and a wonderful generosity of spirit which lift the poems and the reader up.
Rafaella Del Bourgo, Author of I Am Not Kissing You, and Inexplicable Business: Poems Domestic and Wild.

Laura Schulkind’s newest collection of poems The Long Arc of Grief dazzles in the scope of life experiences she shares. In the telling of these stories she uses seemingly inconsequential details to capture the moments when our hearts are pierced by misfortune.
Irma Herrera, Playwright/Solo Performer, Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?, (Best of Festival, 2017 San Francisco Fringe Festival)
