In HOUSE YOU CANNOT REACH, a mother s voice is reimagined, amplified, and permitted to ventilate both forbidden grievance and private passion Simultaneously wistful and excoriating, she cherishes and denounces a philandering husband and ponders the suicide of her youngest son Whether needling a portfolio manager or reconnoitering the disappointing God of her Irish CatholIn HOUSE YOU CANNOT REACH, a mother s voice is reimagined, amplified, and permitted to ventilate both forbidden grievance and private passion Simultaneously wistful and excoriating, she cherishes and denounces a philandering husband and ponders the suicide of her youngest son Whether needling a portfolio manager or reconnoitering the disappointing God of her Irish Catholic upbringing, she casts her sometimes witty, sometimes jaded regard on a society that pampered and grieved her.After a stroke, her restraint loosens even radically Her consciousness splinters as she proceeds to cajole the Virgin of Guadalupe, to hallucinate over Tolstoy s War and Peace, and to brazenly equate her addled suffering with that of earthquake victims in Haiti.Complemented by poems in the poet s voice that extend the territory of their mutual experience, this mother s utterances discomfit and regale with terrifying and exultant fervor.

    Tom Daley's poems contain multitudes. Written in the voices of family members, Tom shows us not only his mother, but all of those whose lives she touched. Daley has the gift of dramatizing many points of view. He demonstrates this in this astonishing book, as well as in his smaller poem for his father, called "Rocket In."
