"A Deeply Personal Work of Grief Before Loss:" Josh Honn's A Slow Archive

I've had the pleasure of getting to know Josh Honn over the past year. He's been a supportive and generous friend. I'm honored to announce that Honn has a chapbook coming out that documents the painful experience of watching his wife, Pam, cope with breast cancer. The poems in A Slow Archive are raw, personal, and exquisite. They are written in the depths of grief for a loved one who is alive but who is slipping away.

All proceeds from the sell of the chapbook will go to helping uninsured and under-insured cancer patients.


Written over the course of a year beginning in May 2014 when his wife Pam was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, A Slow Archive is a three-part poem-diary, an exploration and expression of the role of the lover and care worker in the dying process; an attempt to orient past, present, and future selves amidst encounters with sickness, grief, loneliness and death; and a conversation between, and confession by, two lovers approaching loss at an early age.
