There's a line in a Mary Ruefle poem which speaks of the smell of freshly sharpened pencils. How accurate, we think as we read her. In poems striking for their vivid, playful, and original use of the imagination, she brings us an often unnerving, but always fresh and exhilarating view of our common experience of the world.

Review: Post Meridian

User Review  - Sam Rasnake - Goodreads

Mary Ruefle has an apporach in this collection that connects humor with the deep qualities of life. Like Charles Simic, she has a wild approach to theme, landscape, and character. Great poems here. A pleasure to read. Read full review
