In this book-length autobiographical poem, Malroux recounts her childhood and her father's death in the Nazi concentration camp, Bergen-Belsen.
"An English-to-French translator who was awarded the French Legion of Honor for her work on Emily Dickinson, Malroux resurfaces on these shores with this book-length autobiographical poem set in France before and during WWII. . . . From the start, the speaker confronts the futility of locating her child self in the larger forces that shaped her youth . . . [this volume] furthers Sheep Meadow's commitment to examining WWII and its aftermath from as many angles as possible."—Publishers Weekly
