Poet: Frances Richey

THE WARRIOR

(A Mother’s Story of a Son at War)

september books

 

A “heart-rending”(Anna Quindlen, Newsweek) memoir-in-verse that speaks to a mother’s love for her son

When Frances Richey’s only child, Ben, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and a Green Beret, went on the first of his two deployments to Iraq, she began to write the twenty-eight unflinching poems that make up The Warrior. This urgent and intensely personal collection describes the world of those who wait while their loved ones are in combat or perilous situations; it is universal in its expression of the longing, anguish, love, and hope that constitute close relationships.
