WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Change is in the air as Violet prepares to bring twin boys into the world. Inside her womb, her unborn sons contemplate their future, while outside her body her world is in transformation: her husband is secretly planning to leave her, her father is slipping into senility and her daughter has taken a vow of silence. Smokefall spans the lives of this family in an expansive poetic treatise on the fragility of life and the power of love.
