Poetry. This is the first full-length collection of poems from NEA fellowship recipient Carol Barrett. Barrett has published previously the chapbook "Drawing Lessons", and "The Unauthorized Book of Esther". Poems from CALLING IN THE BONES have been published in Earth's Daughters, Poetry Northwest, Inheritance of Light, and The Women's Review of Books. Jeffrey Skinner calls Barrett's book "generous," "containing an abundant variety of tone, wit, form, and strong feeling." According to Sandra Alcosser, the narrative poems "document the suffering and fecundity of an ensemble cast: a mapmaker, a sleep technician, a man who would eat soap are only a few of the actors celebrated by this poet for their small acts of bravery in an all-too-human world."
