Digital Copy - A Daughter for Mr. Spider by Megan Russo



  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

A Daughter for Mr. Spider is a cross-section of the author’s family tree exploring the grief the author has felt since the passing of her grandfather. The prose, poetry, and collage images weave together the fairy tale-like narrative of the years she was raised by her grandfather, alongside the author’s perceived feeling of growing up as an outsider.

This collection is a call to finding happiness with those who understand you and shedding the negativity we choose to shroud ourselves in as we navigate the differences in the people around us.

A Daughter for Mr. Spider is a story of loss which, in the end, believes that healing is a process we must create for ourselves using the memories of those who leave us as a way to celebrate life.

What a lovely book of poetry ... lovely but also fierce. As this is a digital copy, there was no time spent waiting for it to be shipped. My experience with the shop was the best.

This book is both heartbreaking and cathartic. Written from the perspectives of persons recovering from abuse, it gives a deep sense of both loss and resiliency.
