"You must be taught to love me. Human beings must be
taught to love
silence and darkness."
-Lullaby, p. 58
Althought these poems are gathered in a garden, I say they're always in season. Gluck guides us through the universality of loss, hope, and longing with both sharp, crystalline focus and gentle, graceful empathy. This book articulates what it means to be alive and feeling. It's always on my heart-shelf.
Look no further for a feel-good graphic novel! With lively costume designs, vibrant colors, charming characters, and a plot heartwarming enough to melt even Ann Arbor winters, it’s no wonder Jen Wang won TWO Eisner awards (the Oscars of comics) for this book. (The awards? Best Writer/Artist and Best Publication for Teens.) A fresh, celebratory story of friendship, breaking barriers, and staying true to one’s self. I left it smiling.
Hellooooo, gorgeous book! I could get lost in this guide for hours. Look how amazingly alien the Allium is (page 142, 374)! And how stunning is the Golden Lantern Lily (207)? The Anemone (290)? Beautifully photographed and oh-so-satisfyingly oranganized, this guide is a dream for gardeners, artists, and flower lovers of all kinds.
I keep returning to this collection for its captivating, topsy-turvy wordplay and its delirious love of language. Park’s poems unravel down the page, each new line morphing from the last. They read like kaleidoscopes, spiraling out of themselves into new (yet familiar) evolutions. In my favorite section, Park writes sonnets about mythological creatures, deftly reshaping traditional forms and stories. This book presents poetry as playful transmutation - a reminder that language is its own brand of magic.
