An Absence of, An Earnest by James Maynard



James Maynard has taken his grief and given it a shape and a life in this sustained elegy. An Absence of, an Earnest has a gentle, touching voice that illustrates how time does not diminish loss, and when we read an unfinished sentence or see just white after a comma, we feel it.

–Carl Adamshick, editor of Tavern Books, author of Receipt.
