Veteran, bickering relations - all with their entangled, fractious alliances. As a counterweight, "Household Gods," the book's second section, presents lyric and dramatic monologues whose scenes are the shore, the city, and the countryside. Here are homages and elegies, poems of childhood, betrayal, and loss. Observant and compassionate, Good Hope Road introduces a striking and powerful writer.
