In her third poetry collection, Ari Eastman takes us through a very personal journey of growing up, loss, love, and surviving it all. This book is a must read for anyone who has experienced tremendous grief. Eastman has put together a book that not only exposes the bruises so many of us face, but also one that kisses those same sore spots. Heartbreaking, brutally honest, and surprisingly hopeful, Bloodline is a collection that will stay with you long after reading.
Ari Eastman is a spoken word poet, writer, and mental health activist. Her work has been featured in Thought Catalog, The Rising Phoenix Review, and Words Dance Publishing. She is also the author of two other collections of poetry. She currently resides in California and enjoys crying to old Buffy The Vampire Slayer episodes.
