Advance Praise

"Of Lost Things is a beautiful and heartbreaking love letter to motherhood, a vulnerable and guttural battle cry of womanhood, and plea for us to wake up to both the savage devastation and the unseen miracles of being a human. De Luca seems to peel off layers of skin, allowing the reader to become an intimate voyeur of the most raw and tender places inside her heart, while at the same time showing her teeth with the ferocity of one who's eyes are open to the unjust suffering of our world. These timeless and timely poems will be soaring through your mind long after you've finished reading."

-Jessica Graham, Author of Good Sex: Getting Off without Checking Out

"Of Lost Things will turn you inside out before it welds you back together. You'll be wholly anew with: a bigger heart, softer outlook, and a daring sense of wanting to live an outrageously awe filled life. Each poem a touchstone, a tiny miracle, a risk that is never not worth its weight in love. A rare gem, indeed. Carry it on your person. You'll be better for it."

-Jennifer Pastiloff, Author of On Being Human

"Dani De Luca's Of Lost Things alchemizes what we considered lost, how to mourn about the things we lose, and the different attempts at naming those lost things, be they abstract or concrete. De Luca offers lyric poems that ask you to sit with each line, ask you to feel language as it exists in the speaker's mouth, and to quiet your own conception of a what a poem can do. This collection is a triumph. It weaves the abstraction of mourning through the stories we tell ourselves about our bodies and lives, alongside the many stories we inherit."
