By Prageeta Sharma

Fence Books, 2013, 67 pages, $15.95


Poet Prageeta Sharma explores belonging and outsiderness in the heartbreak of her father’s shame at losing his job and her own search for community in Missoula, Mont. Her fourth collection of poems, the book takes its title from the descent into Hell at the opening of Homer’s Iliad: “and crowded brave souls into the undergloom.” She is an associate professor in the UM Creative Writing Program.
