Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Bryan Clampitt on May 5, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is poetry as it was meant to be...fun, enjoyable. The best poem in the book is called "Anatomy Lesson" and it conjures up some amazing images, especially the heart. Jan Heller Levi imagines the heart as an anthropomorphic writer, pounding away missives just as she is probably pounding away at her typewriter, writing these poems.
