Winner of the 2020 Blue Light Book Award
Claudine Nash’s words once again tug at the very fabric of space and time. Her poems peel back layers in such a way that the reader can simultaneously witness the molten core of the earth and the innermost depths of the narrator’s soul. The body of work contained in Beginner’s Guide to Loss in the Multiverse expounds upon her own constant exploration into the unknown and provides us with the roadmap to follow her there. I hope you will join her on this cosmic journey, for it is one you’re not likely to forget.
