This book is remarkable in numerous ways and Drysdale is a poet to keep your eye on. Her work is stellar, deeply moving, and unrelenting. One of the things she does is push open a wide door through which the aftereffects of sexual abuse are explored.
Rarely have I seen work of this caliber and content--painful, insightful, and, most of all, brave. Her villanelle "Bullet" hits the target straight on, and I wish this poem were widely anthologized. This is not only a book worth buying, but rereading, and rereading, and...

Disclosure: Although I haven't met Carla Drysdale directly, through our work, we are now Facebook friends.
