A half-life is a life led without the other half, and this collection is understandably, from start to finish, obsessed with a husband’s suicide. Even the poem, “Strawberry Pie” is about a woman dying of cancer. Yet, redemption also resides here, mostly in the life of nurtured plants. “These poems originate in pain, yet they radiate light through their intense music and color . . .However harrowing the questions, Fuller asks them with a rare and original grace.” – Hillary Sideris.
