Always Say Goodnight : Elegies for Lenora
by Matt Bialer


Overview -

A tribute to the author's beloved late wife, Lenora Lapidus, who was Director of the Women's Rights Project at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Ms. Lapidus died on May fifth, 2019 after a long battle with cancer.

This full-length collection contains narrative poems that are "intensely personal and yet their greatness lies in the universal truths they reveal. About love. About grief. About longing and anger and desire and passion.... Each poem is] a clarion call--reminding us to count our blessings and hold fast to the now" (Dora Rose, Deputy Director, League of Women Voters of California).

Seb Doubinsky, novelist, poet, and academic, calls ALWAYS SAY GOODNIGHT "a beautiful and moving ode to love and loss."

This book also features two of the author's watercolor paintings, three photographs, and quotations from five of the poems in DIAGNOSIS, a collection by Lenora Lapidus (published in 2013 by Leaky Boot Press).
