This Poem is a House

Coach House Books, April 2016

From Coach House Books:

If love is a house, how do we arrange the furniture?

From accomplished writer Ken Sparling comes a spare verse novel about a girl and a boy and the life they're writing together. But the girl wants a story and the boy wants a poem, and the furniture in the house is stuck in the middle.

Meditative and magical, a book as complicated as the ways we love, This Poem Is a House is, in the end, about a girl's story sheltering a boy's poem the way a house shelters the lives of the people who live in it.
