1 Review
Chosen for the National Poetry Series by Hayden Carruth. Erin Belieu has an uncanny knack for listening and for locating the perspective of various others within her poems. Armed with humor, anger, and sensuality, she fuses the discursive methods of fiction to a lyric impulse, resulting in a remarkable book of portraits, mostly of people caught in ungainly moments of failure and self-revelation.

"On being disregarded by the famous" is one of my favorites to memorize, to give to friends; "The Real Animal" is sexy. Read full review
