Depression & Other Magic TricksDepression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


(Rounded up from 3.5 stars)

Benaim captured Internet attention for her poem and performance of "Explaining Depression to My Mother," which is included here. While that poem is definitely the strongest in the collection, her other poems addressing mental illness and struggle are strong and raw, well-observed and honest. Other poetry is not quite as strong, but as a first collection by a poet whose work is more intended to be performed than simply read, it is a promising start.
