One Thousand Good Answers takes Herrin’s first collection and, using the blackout method, creates a whole new body of work.

In the wreckage of new trauma, and with a determination to heal,
Herrin revisits the old experience of abandonment and betrayal to rewrite her own self-love story.

My favorite kind of media is that which allows or invites me to emote, and I have found so many in this collection that does just that. Sarah’s poems are emotive and connecting – many poems in this book have nurtured my spirit.
