Girl in Tulips is part lyric, part incantation and prayer, part memoir of love and longing. We travel into the underworld of wards with intimacy, wonder, provocation, observing the intricacies of family relationships while tottering on the edge of hope, as DiNenna’s poems take us through the zodiac and seasons of childhood illness, calling us to bear witness to the unseen, the unheard. These poems tell the story of one girl’s struggle for life, the sacredness of childhood and innocence, with tenderness, astonishment, and transformation. You will land in places you never thought you’d visit with people you never expected to meet.

DiNenna’s poems are intellectual and spiritual, existential and surreal, environmental and profound. A debut collection shockingly candid, offering peace and a place to grieve, hope, and yearn.
