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.
Selected by Hayden Carruth as part of the National Poetry Series, this collection from Erin Belieu is funny, sexy, sad, and smart. Belieu sets her sights on such subjects as a hideous chair, the way a tick's attentions might remind one of certain sexual practices, and the way an unprovoked bee sting becomes a lesson in the ways of the world. Robert Pinsky identifies Belieu as "a distinctive new voice."
