In Indie Review: Among the 30 best books of 2019, #22. Instructions for Temporary Survival by Monica Prince.
Publisher: Red Mountain Press
Genre: African & African American Studies & Women Studies
“Winner of the Red Mountain Discovery Award. Monica Prince’s INSTRUCTIONS FOR TEMPORARY SURVIVAL suggests a path that moves one from suffering to healing. The poems tackle historical trauma, racism, rape, and depression–all explain that pain is meant to inform, not define, one’s life. Rather than ask us to live in a constant state of survival, or give up entirely, this collection shows the many ways we can save ourselves, while revealing the secrets that require a rescue in the first place.”
