Books by Caroline Kaufman

by Caroline Kaufman and Yelena Bryksenova - Poetry, Poetry Collection

In LIGHT FILTERS IN, Caroline Kaufman --- known as @poeticpoison --- does what she does best: reflects our own experiences back at us and makes us feel less alone, one exquisite and insightful piece at a time. She writes about giving up too much of yourself to someone else, not fitting in, endlessly Googling “how to be happy” and ultimately figuring out who you are.
