The Temple She Became–Rachel Custer

Custer TTSB web-01

In her stunning first collection The Temple She Became, Rachel Custer writes, “A moment can be a cathedral.” The poems in this collection delineate life as a kind of religion—uncovering the damned and seeking the divine in the daily-ness of living. Bitingly honest as well as elegantly crafted, they unfold before the reader like the paintings that inspire many of them:  It is all here, they seem to say, if you are willing to look close enough. Be willing—these brilliant, beautiful poems will stay with you long after the book is closed.
~ Laura Orem, author of Resurrection Biology and Castrata: A Conversation
