Theory of Orange
Poetry. Gay and Lesbian Studies. Rachel M. Simon's THEORY OF ORANGE the Winner of the Transcontinental Poetry Prize for 2005-06 is the first collection from this New York based lesbian author. "Sometimes in floods, sometimes in careful ministrations, THEORY OF ORAGNE salvages for us consolations where it can; in the humor of mock-authority and in the humility of grief and hope. In a language that ranges from the securities of instruction and structural regularity to plaint and improvisation, where the nightmarish vies with slapstick, Rachel Simon's poetry springs from a truly charitable spirit of revelation"-Dean Young.
