Poetry. Women's studies. Alice Friman's THE BOOK OF THE ROTTEN DAUGHTER contains "astonishing poems which fearlessly jump into hell and out again, that resent or forgive," writes poet Marianne Boruch, "poems which wryly, exactly and so richly honor the world of the living." Friman draws on her experience as caregiver for her aging mother and father, exploring such topics as nursing homes, osteoporosis, guilt, grief, the enduring power of familial relationships and the transcendent power of art. "The book isn't about death but about the living's reaction to it," Friman says. "The 'Rotten Daughter' has at least pulled something out of the fire. She has created something."
