AND OTHER POEMS
by Catherine Rankovic
"Rankovic's reach is wide and probing, and crushingly close to the bone when she looks closely at the life around her...uncovering a hard-won understanding of the thin and temporary - and mocking - victory of the artist's "fierce consent" to achieve something in this world. These poems are tender, fierce, courageous and well-honed, alternately mad as hell and funny as hell. If this is where poetry is going, we may be okay after all."
