Kerrin McCaddens LANDSCAPE WITH PLYWOOD SILHOUETTES is one of the most compelling and powerful debut collections in recent American poetry. These exquisite meditations on the lived life are often nothing less than stunning, and are at times truly devastating. This gorgeous collection is both mature and tender in its reckonings of our shifting relationships with family and loved ones. Kerrin McCadden is especially accomplished in considering those whove engaged in constructions of daily happiness only to discover that what theyd begun in dream has ended in quiet wreckage. Poem by poem, we are consoled by the poets remarkable reflective ease and her profound intimacy. The beauty of these poems is matched only by their sense of triumph in resilience, and its resulting peace.--David St. John
