The Greatest Trick
by Madeline Speer

The Greatest Trick by Madeline Speer is a hauntingly beautiful collection of poetry and prose revealing episodes of pain, endurance, and survival in the aftermath of abuse and divorce. In this deeply raw and painful collection, Speer’s genuine writing journeys through the emotional trials of losing love and rebuilding. Divorce is painful, depression is painful, and the prose that unites these powerful experiences speaks directly to its readers to say that they are not alone, and they, too, will be okay.
