Amy Elisabeth Hansen gives Once, Then her highest praise

Over the weekend, Amy Elisabeth Hansen of Passages North Literary Journal reviewed Andrea Scarpino's Once, Then, calling it "a monument to people and times past." Hansen writes, “These poems work like gifts, maybe less about the yous, hes and shes than they are for them. Scarpino places the subject in front of the poem, rather than containing him within it, which is how Once, Then can wrap itself around so much loss.”

Read the full review from Passages North here for Hansen's further thoughts on the collection, and how Scarpino's words helped her to better understand grief.
