Poetry. Winner of the Barrow Street Press Poetry Prize selected by Phillis Levin, BLACK LEAPT IN is a collection of poems about Forhan's childhood in Seattle and his father, who committed suicide in 1973. In it he writes of family vacations, of secretly observing his father watching TV late into the night, of how his father "conceived of us, dealt us like cards to our mother" and of how his perceptions changed when his father died. "In this stunning new book, BLACK LEAPT IN, Chris Forhan makes narrative probe and sing the haunted, haunting landscapes of childhood and adolescence. Forhan unfolds his inventory of losses and joys with an unerring ear and an eloquence bordering on the visionary"--Gregory Orr.
