Poems and Poems: Jillian Wiese and “The Book of Goodbyes”

It’s about relationships, whether the subject is an antiquated law about maimed people, a recipe for tilapia, even flower arranging.

It’s a notable volume, and not only because it was the 2013 winner of the James Laughlin Award for best second book of poetry from the Academy of American Poets. Weise’s first was The Amputee’s Guide to Sex (2007), the title of which tells you at least some of what you might expect in The Book of Goodbyes.
