This collection of poems tells a multi-layered story between worlds: old country vs. new country, traditional life vs. modern life, health vs. illness. Biello takes us on this journey between these worlds and shows us how mother, father and daughter cope with loss and re-discover each other through the difficult illness of Alzheimer's disease. Everything must change to make way for this new journey. This is the beat of her language, culture and family disappearing, but somehow in the heart of it all, love remains.


"A captivating novel of the quest located between the myth of Orpheus and the return of Dante's hell." — Emmanuel Khérad
