Excerpt from review by Megan Kuklis for the Fiddlehead.
Our Cancers – by Dan O’Brien
Acre Books, 2021
“Dan O’Brien’s collection has brought his experience of his wife’s and his own cancer into the realm of shared memory. Although deeply personal, his poetic memories transcend into the universal story of grief and caregiving. […] A testament to resilience during ongoing trauma, these poems carve out snippets of wonder and remembrance to eulogize their twin disasters. This collection reminds us that there are moments in any given day, even the bad ones, that are worth remembering.”
