Through wit, vulnerability, and rich lyrical language, Tomaselli invites us to walk with her through loss and on to a persistent process of discovery. The poems chronicle a cultivation of awe, unearthing a fresh faith rooted in the present realness of everyday experiences. Stripped of the orthodoxy that both grew and crushed her, she reconstructs a new core of trust for herself. Here we learn with the poet to seek celebration in daily life and to foster a sense of beauty from the mundane.

“Spare, both episodic and epigrammatic, as invested in mystery as in the quotidian, Brittany Tomaselli’s Since Sunday reads like a contemporary book of hours—except for hours, insert anxieties. . . . These poems seem the wind’s equivalent, offering a way through fear, past doubt, to the stay of belief, in the self, and in each small life’s possibilities. Tomaselli is a marvel. I’m so grateful for Since Sunday.”
Carl Phillips, author of Wild Is the Wind
“Since Sunday is one of the most remarkable collections I’ve read in a long time––it’s a chapbook as big as the sky. This is actual seeing––what poetry forgot––and antennae-accurate hearing, which it can’t live without. With singular candor and deftness, Tomaselli summons a world on every page, like a mage with her scrying sphere––so she is. Hatless men, Reader, all––delight. Everything in Since Sunday is alive.”
