"Herein lies a tensile weave of word and image, of word as image. The centrifugal force of the word, the heart of a nest, filled with blue, the empty center from which we write the ineffable present."
–Lee Ann Brown
“The persistence of bad dreams, the meaning of illness, the acquaintances and the distractions of apartment life, erotic attachment and filial attention energize [Frost’s] elegant poems. . . . Her people view the ordinary life course – birth, growth, health; parenthood, illness, death – with a tenacious combination of fear and devotion.”
Poems from Red Glass Books, edited by Janet Kaplan.
Prose poems from Tout Court Editions, Mermaid Tenement Press, edited by Laura Hinton. With cover art by Dianne Kornberg.
“Informed and insightful, this fascinating study of a feminist avant-garde tradition in poetry of the last century is both important and, because experimental work is now dramatically reshaping poetry in English, timely.”
–Lynn Keller, professor of English, University of Wisconsin–Madison
“Frost and Hogue dish up an illuminating set of interviews – literary conversations – with fourteen poets. . . . Poetic, personal, and professional revelations abound in this anthology, framed by insightful introductions and well-chosen poems. This is a splendid book.”
–Vince Gotera, The North American Review
