Words That Occur in the Absence of Love

November 10, 2013

Poetry is all about love. But what happens when love is absent? In her first poetry chapbook, Charron Andrus, gives the love torn a volume of thirteen pieces that move the reader from the newly heartbroken “Living Without” to the heart break survivor “Broken”. Words That Occur in the Absence of Love is a terrific exploration into heartbreak and its aftermath.


"Every story I write adds to me a little, changes me a little, forces me to reexamine an attitude or belief, causes me to research and learn, helps me to understand people and grow."

Octavia E. Butler
