Review

"Cathy Smith Bowers' new book possesses a sensuous intelligence, a tongue both observant and precise, a brave and vulnerable heart. Bowers brings to the page powerful grief-stories, the witness of fully open eyes. I find myself instructed, awakened, and moved." -- Jane Hirshfield

Format: Paperback
Cathy Smith Bowers' first book hinted at the power this poet can bring to her subject; her second book realizes that power and does so with grace and craft. Bowers' "Traveling in Time of Danger" is one of the best books I have read recently, much better than many of the big prize-winning volumes celebrated by the current poetry "establishment." Published by Iris Press in Tennesse, Traveling in Time of Danger gives us moving poems about the loss of a brother to AIDS,humorous poems about family and neighbors, reflective poems on the subject of marriage and failure. Throughout this book, Bowers' lyricism and gift for poetic structure rings true. This is a wonderful book. Bowers is one of our best contemporary American poets.

This author is a rare delight - get all of her books and choose a rainy (or sunny) Sunday afternoon to sit alone reading them all over and over again.... Honestly, you don't have to be an avid fan of poetry to enjoy Cathy Smith Bowers. She writes for everyone and says things in ways that will overwhelm and enlighten. Read these when you can laugh out loud, and weep openly.
