Kiddushin, or Toaster Oven Fire

by Eliza Gouverneur

From Rosh Hodesh Nissan, to the school playground, canoeing at dusk to the marriage bed, this collection of poetry touches on moments in the life of a contemporary Jewish family. The poems reflect on the love and loneliness of a wife, the intersection of Shabbat and Little League, the humor and struggle of raising adolescents. Wrestling with theology and loss, the poet’s illumination of these common experiences rings with clarity and deep feeling.
