NEW Review of Bone of My Bone by Nicole Rollender (Blood Pudding Press, 2015)

The speaker grapples with her own creation, and the subsequent birth of her children. The body is gruesome, especially in its decay, but Rollender wrangles this gore into “a giant star’s last open into brilliance.” The waxy and dead skin of her grandmother is given a second life in the speaker’s skin and the Frankenstein effect is a reconciliation
