Left Bank Books
In her third memoir, Great River Road, former St. Louisan Madelon Sprengnether explores the malleable nature of memory and the healing powers of the written word, beginning and ending at the Mississippi River where her father drowned in a tragic accident in front of his family in 1951. Near Solstice is a series of interlinked prose poems, meditations on the death of family members and friends, with the passing of seasons, sexuality, the consolations of landscape and the significance of light.
