In Orphans, a verse memoir, poet psychologist Joan Cusack Handler explores our most primitive and ambivalent relationships—those with aging parents—meanwhile confronting her own mortality. In a life lesson we’re often unprepared for, Handler presents the reversal of roles and the eruption of unresolved conflicts that persist from childhood.
