Book 13: Sally Keith’s ‘River House’


This week, Football Book Club is reading River House by Sally Keith and posting about Richard McGuire’s Here and Ray Russell’s The Case Against Satan.

River House is Keith’s fourth collection of poetry and received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, which called the book “heartbreaking and robust” and an exploration of “the complexity of the mind in the midst of grief.”

Rob nominated this title for Football Book Club because “I thought Sally Keith’s River House would make a terrific book for FBC — its linked prose poems re-make the elegy form.”
