Description

Love, tequila, sex, first periods, late nights, abuse, and heartache. The journey from girl to womanhood is brimming with transformative magic that heals even as it shatters. These are the memories that haunt the dreams of what was and what could have been in Girl with Death Mask.

In four rich and imaginative movements of poems, Jennifer Givhan profiles the suffering and the love of a Latina girl and then mother coming to terms with sexual trauma. Her daughter is a touchstone of healing as she seeks to unravel her own emotions as well as protect the next generation of budding women with a fierceness she must find within. Givhan exploits changing poetic forms to expose what it means to mature in a female body swirling with tenderness, violence, and potential in an uncertain world. Girl with Death Mask is a cathartic and gripping confession of the trials of adolescence and womanhood.

Praise forGirl wit Deat Mask
“Jennifer Givhan, we’re awed by your use of pause and pacing, as you lead us to better understanding a woman’s landmine-lled journey out of childhood.” —ForeWord Reviews
“Givhan crafts a clear-eyed narrative of Latina womanhood in this lovely collection ripe with longing, hope, and broken faith. . . . She explores the dark sides of adolescence and womanhood with searing imagery and a healthy dose of empathy.” Publisers Weekly
hese poems beautifully, convincingly do wHat I Hope poems migHt— tHey disrupt wHat I know, or wHat I tHougHt I knew. And in tHat way tHey invent for me a world. A world Haunted and brutal, yes. But one mended, too, by tHe love and tenderness and vision and magic by wHicH tHese poems are made. Again and again I found myself looking into space, sort of sHaken, sort of grasping, turning and turning inside a line or pHrase, inside an image or metapHor, inside some devastating music.” —Ross Gay, autHor ofCatalog of Unabased Gratitude
“Magic, alcHemy, transmogrification, and tHe body’s deep obsessions fill tHese lyrically cHarged poems witH an uneartHed power. GivHan is a poet wHo knows tHe bones of Her own world so well tHat sHe can rearrange tHem into anytHing sHe wisHes. BotH surreal and rooted in trutH, tHe complex and gorgeous poems inGirl wit Deat Maskcontinue to sHake, stun, and weave tHeir spells long after tHe book is closed.” —Ada Limón, autHor ofBrigt Dead hings
“In the image-rich, circuitous journey ofGirl wit Deat Mask, the girl both dees and weds death and its accomplice, sex, dees and weds collective mythologies. She flies and se falls, floats and drowns—se lives and dies; dying begets flying. . . . In tis raw, kinetic masterpiece of survival’s nimble footwork, ‘even troug deat masks,’ Givan assures us, ‘we can kiss.’” —Diane Seuss, autor ofFour-Legged Girl
Girl wit Deat Masksakes te bars of our prisons and also tose on wic we write our music. . . . hese poems illuminate ow to love te body’s wants wile slipping te sackles of power and same. How ard our bodies work to bring teir wisdom to us. How ard it is to love wat we’ve been told to fear. How ard it is to learn te ways tat love abides despite our best efforts to dislodge, disprove, and doubt it. hese poems find teir way. hey sake up our knowing in te best ways.” —Irena Praitis, autor ofhe Last Stone in te Circle
