Synonyms for (OTHER) Bodies

“With each poem in her debut collection, Synonyms for (OTHER) Bodies, Daryl Sznyter peels back one of the tender, horrific, humorous, and often magical veils through which we view ourselves, others, and the collective “We” that for better or worse, comprises the human race. Oscillating between feminist and humanist, Sznyter’s words sing both anthem and psalm. Her unforgettable images – from acouple’s tender moment at the gynecologist to a mother-daughter bonding experience at a concert – will slam your head against the wall only to step back and nurture the wound.”
