Grace Schulman's Text at the NBCC Good Reads Discussion:
"The Bag of Broken Glass, by Yerra Sugarman (Sheep Meadow). This is the second book by a remarkable poet, daughter of Shoah survivors, and poetic heir to Paul Celan and Nelly Sachs. Sugarman is, though, a startling originality. Most striking is what is unsaid: She writes profoundly of grief and loss, her silences evoking tragedies of history that are simultaneously personal and universal, affecting us with her music, lyrical tone, and mastery of form."
