Pulitzer Prize-winner Jericho Brown

Bright Shade is an appreciation of the wild woods,

the rolling hills, the Appalachian air, and the little rivers that were the

setting of Chelsea Harlan's upbringing. The poems speak through the liminal

space between the body and its relationships to other bodies, and the human

relationship with nature--and so climate change is, inevitably, part of this

book's undercurrent of grief. As the author navigates the high highs and the

low lows of manic depression, Bright Shade articulates the wonder that

accompanies sadness and the sadness that accompanies joy. Chelsea Harlan's work

is humorous, indeed bittersweet (bright / shade), and a little strange in

exactly the right way.
