Deaf Republic: Poems | Ilya Kaminsky

Excellent collection of connected poems. In an unnamed town, residents become deaf when occupying forces kill a boy. They use signs and puppets to communicate, while the puppet master‘s girls kill soldiers one by one. A parable of current events—how so many pretend nothing is happening, going deaf to news. A #nationalbookaward finalist for #poetry

Started and finished this as I waited for my car to be serviced this morning. Inventive and harrowing and an indictment.
