In The Field Between Us

About the Book




In the Field Between Us is a collaborative project between poets Molly McCully Brown and Susannah Nevison that tackles questions of identity and belonging in the aftermath of lifelong medical intervention. An epistolary sequence of poems that comprises a dialogue between two disabled speakers, the book traces their struggle to find purchase in an increasingly inhospitable landscape. As the poems unfold, the speakers encounter a natural world that begins to mirror the trauma they have faced, and must continue to face, in their search for a true point of origin.

Excerpts from the book have appeared, or are forthcoming, in:

 Tin House, the New York Times, Blackbird, diode poetry journal, Indiana Review, and elsewhere...
