Description


Devin Devine's debut collection DRINKING TO SAINTHOOD is an unwavering portrayal of addiction, both the funeral and the wake. Drinking to Sainthood confronts the narrative of two addicts careening into love, the crumbling of a whiskey-brined marriage, and ultimately the loss of Devine's estranged husband to suicide. This collection is a labyrinth to Devine's sobriety, from journal entry to the hospital stay. This book is a biblical reconciliation of grief, a willingness to offer mercy, and an invocation to forgive oneself.

Drinking to Sainthood is a lifeline for those of us that have survived rock bottom and homage to those that didn't. A profound and cautious study in mourning, self-preservation, and the lengths our hearts will take us to love our kin and ourselves, no matter the cost.--Desire Dallagiacomo, author of Sink

We aren't always ready for what we need. This collection of poems is a tire iron hidden under a blanket of apologies and wishes. It is a model for fearless writing. It is a clear reminder that it is not a total loss to be totally filled with loss.--Derrick C. Brown, author of How the Body Works in the Dark

Poetry. Hybrid. LGBTQ+ Studies. Women's Studies.
