BULLET HOLE RIDDLE

MIRIAM BARR

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Bullet Hole Riddle is a three-part narrative sequence charting one person's journey to make sense of an unwanted history. Framing personal experience as a series of collective acts, Miriam Barr's first major collection of poetry tells a story about the human psyche and the spaces between us.  

 

“At its best it’s brilliant, nearly always compelling and moving, always interesting. Mostly I like the surprise of images that carry complex emotional truths…There’s the shock of the new… powerful and heartfelt.”
