Donna Coffey, Firestreet (Finishing Line Press)

“Donna Coffey’s wonderful poems combine merciless candor and merciful empathy - the necessary gifts of a poet working to “fix broken things,” to record, reconcile, and transform discordant lives and landscapes. Fire Street is, as the title suggests, a place - a path of illumination and calamity. In this breathtaking, heartbreaking collection each spark of memory blazes into poetry of acuity and beauty. - Terrance Hayes
