Hard Rain, Hard Wind by Jamie Weaver is a powerful poetic dialogue about familial shame and reconciliation that emerges between the poet, her grandfather Joe, and several generations of female family members. The publication is available at: http://www.finishinglinepress.com
“Jamie Weaver’s Hard Rain, Hard Wind poetically decodes letters written by the women in her family to reveal the hardscrabble reality of their lives. In doing so Weaver shows a generosity of spirit, but equally important, a sophisticated psychological and feminist understanding of sexual politics and power that both disturbs and haunts the reader.”
