Loving What Doesnt Last$17.95Add to cart
For all who inhabit a body and wonder about its place in the universe.
Through lyric essays and poetry, Christina Kukuk finds the spiritual in the most material bodily experiences: a twenty-one-year-old heroin addict, the mother who plants an orchard in his memory, a girl’s tumble through food scarcity, an adolescent awakening to infatuation at summer camp, and a woman waiting hours for her lover’s recovery on a hospital’s transplant floor. Earthy and divine, funny at times, these pages invite readers into an adoration of the body–birth, food, love, pain, death, and water become skin-wrapped windows into the holy.
