Q & A by Adrienne Gruber


Pre-Order Now – April 1, 2019

Adrienne Gruber’s third full poetry collection, Q & A, is a poetic memoir detailing a first pregnancy, birth and early postpartum period. The poet is both traumatized and transformed by the birth of her daughter. She is compelled by the dark places birth takes her and as she examines and revisits those places, a grotesque history of the treatment of pregnant and birthing women reveals itself.

Praise for Q & A:

“To give birth, to bear life—to release and capture that experience in words: this is the crystalline achievement of Q & A. Gruber’s poetry resonates in the hollows of my body, in the fear and hope that accompanies motherhood.”
—Marianne Apostolides, author of Deep Salt Water
