MUSIC FOR FORGETTING

Rebecca Kai Dotlich, Author, Jan Spivey Gilchrist, Illustrator

Speaking in a mode best known as the abstract lyric, Grinnell's voice limns "friendless parakeeting," "remnant rug-burn" and other empty social gestures, while searching memory and childhood for a sensate sublime. Hitting "Ogden, Utah," "Mt. Airy, North Carolina" among other locales providing titles, Grinnell, "pressed to the shell by shear force," finds "mypoic/fragrant variety." (June)
