Three Syllables Describing Addiction is a devastating unforgettable account of the way the terrors and heartbreak of addiction can ramify through a family, through a community, through a nation. These new poems only confirm what many of us have known for years now, that Kate Daniels is one of our nation’s greatest poets of the destructive vagaries and enduring values of human attachment.” —ALAN SHAPIRO

“This sequence of poems describes a mother’s descent into Hell to save her son. What she finds is that she cannot save him—she can save only herself—and only by letting him go. This is the nightmare of America’s heroin epidemic, told succinctly, beautifully, every line exploring the depths of our national nightmare. Our young are eating themselves alive, and Kate Daniels bears witness.” MICHAEL SIMMS
