Something Small To Carry Home

Something Small To Carry Home is an homage to the dead and the living, a family history, a celebration of life’s special occasions, and a meditation on poetry itself, its solace and significance through the poets who’ve nurtured and inspired the author.


About The Author

Isa Milman


Reviews of this Book

“Isa Milman’s evocative and eloquent poems resemble the striking mementos she writes of, that pass ‘from pocket to pocket, / from hand to hand,’ from the dead to the living. Stones and bones, cake crumbs and Kaddish prayers, dust and shadows, Milman’s images ‘glimpse the stars’ despite the darkness – her haunting words a ‘Yes to keep going. Yes’.”
