Poetry must be honest and precise, yes—but it must also dare us to see what we are invited not to see and say what seems easier not to say. In Killing Summer, Sarah Browning writes what is difficult but essential in a time when buffoonery in our nation’s highest office tempts us to shake our heads and close our eyes. Perhaps the first step in asserting the need for a new paradigm is finding the words that reveal the brokenness of the current one. These are those words. With both tender ferocity and subtle elegance, this book helps to sustain us.

The poems in Killing Summer are empathetic, compassionate, and precise as they speak up, speak out, and talk back.

These poems are beautiful, accessible, rich, and layered. They name and explore the injustices with which our world abounds. Yet they also rejoice with the possibility that comes with every human encounter.
