HAVE LOVE BY DR. DEIRDRE FAGAN
published by Finishing Line Press 2019
"Have Love offers unflinching, intimate glimpses into familial and romantic scenes, challenging our assumptions about giving and receiving love. There is pain when relationships and bodies fail, but the speaker opens herself up to 'a new voice singing' and urges us to 'Stir, stir the soup./ Light the candle./ Wash your face.'” -- Erin Murphy, author of Assisted Living
"In poems varied in length and shape including tiny poems the size of blossoms or bruises, Deirdre Fagan pens a marvelous sheaf full of nearly epigrammatic lines on the death of a spouse and the power of love to reclaim life in the afterwards." -- Sean Thomas Dougherty, author of The Second O of Sorrow
"Have Love is a book that both grieves and celebrates love, its unexpected gifts and its tragic losses, the humans who embody it and the human body’s degeneration. Have Love is courageous enough to be dazed by love’s comings and goings." -- Kathy Fagan, author of Sycamore
