Poetry, chapbook, 35 pages, from Glass Poetry Press.

The poems of Lifeline are deliciously alive, even while mercilessly dissecting trauma and loss. Givhan's searing imagery and candor depicts womanhood in its most raw and honest form — as a gritty mosaic of fractured ghosts held together by blood and resistance.

-Rachel McKibbens, author of Into The Dark & Emptying Field
