The Sewing Room
In The Sewing Room, Carla Funk reveals deftly observed insights into childhood and time, matrimony and spirituality, representation and recollection. Funk explores issues of faith and belief, writes about the seven deadly sins, re-imagines Bible stories, inhabits marriage and domesticity to interrogate love. In this collection, children play flashlight tag, a father builds his daughter a tree house, a mother makes a blue velvet Christmas dress: this is poetry created from memory's ragbag. (This is also poetry created from memory’s crawlspace, memory’s attic, memory’s junk drawer, and memory’s over-stuffed purse.)
