9781884800979: The Glimmering Room (Stahlecker Selections)

Fierce and fearless, The Glimmering Room beckons readers down into the young speaker’s dark underworld, and because we are seduced by Cruz’s startling imagery and language rich with “Death’s outrageous music,” we follow willingly. Peopled with “ambassadors from the Netherworld”—the orphaned and abused, the lost and addicted—Cruz leads us through this “traveling minstrel show / Called girlhood—” which is at once tragic and magical.

About the Author:

CYNTHIA CRUZ is the author of Ruin and teaches at Sarah Lawrence College.

Review:

“Each writer’s new collection is a bracing meditation on mortality...Ms. Cruz’s poems are an ecstatic overdose of language and emotion...Her razor-wire stanzas in The Glimmering Room, even better than her fine debut, Ruin (Alice James Books, 2006), are full of too-young desolation angels, ‘the other almost-girls’ and ‘the boys who want to die.’...This powerful poetry is a heart offering by way of Ms. Cruz’s ancestor-sisters Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath.”—Dana Jennings, New York Times Review
