The Wendys

2020 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Poetry (General)

“Because it is easier to miss a stranger / with your mother’s name,” Allison Benis White instead writes about five women named Wendy as a way into the complex grief that still lingers after the death of a sixth Wendy, the author’s long-absent mother. "The Wendys" is a book of silences and space in which tenderness and violence exist in exquisite tension.
