About the Book

In this debut collection, Marc Tretin explores how family is the loneliest place of all. Because of his gut-deep feelings of impotence and his permanent sense of dislocation, his lyrical poems delve into those moments we would prefer not to think about. Uncomfortable with his wife and children, and believing in a punitive God, his feelings well from broken hearted to an incipient violence, that fortunately never breaks the surface. Deftly, this volume of poems, ranges from sonnets his wife would have written about him and his failures as a husband to the poems concerning the broken-lives that enter the doors of the Kings County Family Court. This book is not for the faint of heart.
