Format: Paperback
Laura McCullough should be New Jersey's Poet Laureate, her work is so "located" there. But her beautiful poems cross all borders, radiant with filtered light, musical interludes and crystal resonances. What most of us wouldn't even notice she explores and finds meaningful, helping us learn how one woman lives one rich life. I'll let someone else decide if she's right about what men want, but again and again she hits the mark in this book of lovely and penetrating poems.
