Description - Blood Relations by Sandy Jeffs

The poems in this collection are an evocative documentation of the harrowing experiences of a child living in a hostile and unhappy home. The reader is shown the pain, the bitterness and the mixed emotions that accompany the experiences of growing up in a family torn apart by domestic violence and alcoholism. Memory is tested by remembering what one does not want to remember.
