A witty and elegiac new collection from the author of "exhilarating, fierce [and] powerful” verse (Robert Pinsky, Washington Post).

The speakers of Oracle occupy the outer-borough cityscape of New York's Staten Island, where they move through worlds glittering with refuse and peopled by ghosts―of a dead lover, of a friend lost to suicide, of a dog with glistening eyes. Marvin's haunting, passionate poems explore themes of loss, of the vulnerability of womanhood in a world hostile to it, and of the fraught, strangely compelling landscape of adolescence.

A cofounder of VIDA and a professor of English at CUNY, she lives in Maplewood, New Jersey.

Review:

“Poems finely tuned . . . full of inventive echoes and spring-loaded syntax.”
- Dialogist

“She takes no prisoners.”
- NPR

“Intense and intimate.”
- Rumpus

“Channels the colorful voices of Staten Island.”
- Vanity Fair

“Spectral, charged poems: a wild, ferocious bunch capable of emotional darkness, bound by a strong poetic I . . . a successful call to arms.”
- Publisher's Weekly

“These are poems of feeling, memory, and calamity, of a life lived near the edge and an edge that nevertheless always resolves itself into a haunting ethical music. This is a wonderful collection of poems. It makes a powerful claim on the reader at every turn, on every page.”
- Eavan Boland
