Review of Blister of Stars from www.birth-defect.org

http://www.birth-defect.org/tef-tof-vacterl-charge-paper-books/

Jason Irwin was born with a litany of birth defects. A Blister of Stars is Irwin’s interrogation of his own biography. His poems reveal the terror felt by a child confused about what is happening to his body; the endless surgeries and difficult recoveries, the strain it all puts on his parents both emotionally and financially. Irwin’s luminous, reflective poems strive for solace in the face of horror, hold fast to faith while staring into the void.
