Sholeh Wolpé and Suzanne Roberts present their latest, Abacus of Loss: A Memoir in Verse and Animal Bodies: On Death, Desire, and Other Difficulties

Albert Einstein said, "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted." It is in this vein that Sholeh Wolpé's mesmerizing memoir in verse unfolds. In this lyrical and candid work, her fifth collection of poems, Wolpé invokes the abacus as an instrument of remembering. Through different countries and cultures, she carries us bead by bead on a journey of loss and triumph, love and exile. In the end, the tally is insight, not numbers, and we arrive at a place where nothing is too small for gratitude. (University of Arkansas Press)
