In Holly J. Hughes’s second full-length collection, Hold Fast, she turns her attention to challenging times both personally and politically, asking in an epigraph: “What will we cling to in the confusion of the tides? What structures of connection will hold us in place?”
In poems both moving and compassionate, she excavates past memories while witnessing the present moment, turning to the places, communities, writers and family who sustained her—and celebrating the “ten thousand sorrows and ten thousand joys” that she invites us all to hold fast.
