Kim Triedman


The Other Room

“Kim Triedman’s The Other Room is a gorgeous meditation on what the death of a child can do to a family that prefers silence over exhibition. With her pristine sentences, she depicts how even the simplest of moments can stretch the lives of the survivors dangerously thin. The book brims with yearning, circling both the reckless and selfish sides of love and grief until the novel reaches a fever pitch. This is the true work of a poet enriching every possibility of narrative.”
