Editorial Reviews

Review

"A volume of wonderful fits and starts: well-built narratives are suddenly interrupted by a cryptic epithalamion. Short lines ease into spacious distances and big, ambling-paced arguments. An epigram suddenly grows a long neck and becomes an elegy. A lyric shears off into a one-line ending . . . . There is real verve, real invention and, above all, true craft . . . showing what the reader most wants—a poet certain of the craft, a writer certain of what the craft is there to do."  —Eavan Boland, poet and English professor, Stanford University

Format: Paperback
These poems have a remarkable way of transforming the interior worlds of their narrators into something wholly exterior, shared, and alive. Settings like Perry Street, Brussels, Paris, the Pacific Northwest, and many others shimmer and ache with longing, possibility, and vision. I love "Taking the Waters," and "My Grandfather's Last Bird: A Trio of Voices," and "Mark Morris Comments on Dance V." From the first:

"...Aquarius,

the Water Bearer, pours black sky into sky

adn the dark passes through even

the transparent glass, that lifted, offers

the dry throat, invisible and needed as hope,

a plain drink."

Format: Paperback
Elline Lipkin's new book "The Errant Thread" spans three continents. It is smart and fierce - some of it dense and sinuous, some quick and biting. ?It captures something very true about the ambivalence of being a woman at this particular historical moment - the uneasy balance of traditional expectations with one's own uncertain longings. ??There's an aching, exuberant story of a modern wanderer in here, interspersed with myth and literature, family history, and lovely tone poems that evoke the quiet of day's slide into dusk. ?I wax poetic just talking about it! ?Check it out!
