How To Love The Empty Air

New York Times bestselling nonfiction writer and poet Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz’s How to Love the Empty Air reaches new heights in her revelatory seventh collection of poetry. Continuing in her tradition of engaging autobiographical work, How to Love the Empty Air explores what happens when the impossible becomes real?for better and for worse. Aptowicz’s journey to find happiness and home in her ever-shifting world sees her struggling in cities throughout America. When her luck changes?in love and in life?she can’t help but “tell the sun / tell the fields / tell the huge Texas sky.... / tell myself again and again until I believe it.” However, the upward trajectory of this new life is rocked by the sudden death of the poet’s mother. In the year that follows, Aptowicz battles the silencing power of grief with intimate poems burnished by loss and a hard-won humor, capturing the dance that all newly grieving must do between everyday living and the desire “to elope with this grief, / who is not your enemy, / this grief who maybe now is your best friend. / This grief, who is your husband, / the thing you curl into every night, / falling asleep in its arms...” As in her award-winning The Year of No Mistakes, Aptowicz counts her losses and her blessings, knowing how despite it all, life “ripples boundless, like electricity, like joy / like... laughter, irresistible and bright, / an impossible thing to contain.”

Dear Future Boyfriend

Dear Future Boyfriend

In her celebrated debut volume, Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz tackles, among other idiosyncratic topics, love ("Science"), heartbreak ("Lit"), and thieving suburban punks ("Ode to the Person Who Stole My Family's Lawn Gnome"). Quirky and funny with a subtext of social commentary, Aptowicz's writing lets the reader ride shotgun in a hilarious sprawling road trip through America’s youth culture. Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is a dizzying dervish of a poet, an astounding talent, a deft lyricist whose patented take on this dopey world is dazzling in its originality. Everything she encounters is fair game, and she jolts us into unexpected, delightful recognition. -Patricia Smith, "Blood Dazzler" Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz is a flash flood of uppercut quotes. Reading her work tempts me to lean over to the people next to me, and say, “Hey, you gotta see this.” Do not miss the opportunity to absorb this woman's work, page or stage." - Buddy Wakefield, "Live for a Living"
