In poems that open into a maze of rooms and walls, Peter Grandbois takes on marriage, fatherhood, the ravages of family life. He brings a piercing, dreamlike attention to everything in a packed household that isn’t there: what can’t be said, what shouldn’t be said. At once harrowing and deeply tender, This House That tracks the intensity of living too close to one another, the sense of being trapped inside a solace you once chose.” —Joanna Klink
