Poetry. Women's Studies. This is Diana Whitney's debut book of poems praised as a "saucily entitled and brilliant book...What a debut " by Vermont Poet Laureate Sydney Lea, a debut with "a tremulous spirit full of...imaginative agitation" adds Major Jackson, and "one of the finest collections I've read in a very long time" says Laura Kasischke.
