Two Faint Lines in the Violet

2014 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)

In her first collection, Kiernan explores poetry's unique ability to document yet revision the nuclear age, how when singing somewhere between the personal and political—if we listen closely—we might hear the social. Fueled by her investigation into Yankee Rowe Nuclear Power Plant—the first commercial nuclear unit shut down due to embrittlement concerns—and the etiology of her father's brain tumor, Kiernan mines a place where personal and industrial meltdowns converge and converse.
