Cultural Writing. Memoir. Moxley's detailed and lushly-written memoir is set largely in San Diego and follows her life thus far from childhood to marriage. Consistently focused on poetry and poets, it dwells on the curious ways Americans now find their way into the literary life. "There was a secret force deep in my psyche which, like a Cold War double agent, worked in tandem with my insecurity, a sort of wicked interior spy that emerged at the most inopportune moments to make sport of all my fears and fill me with crippling self-doubt as regards my natural fitness to live the life of the mind"--from the text. Jennifer Moxley teaches creative writing and literature at the University of Maine. Her books of poetry include IMAGINATION VERSES, OFTEN CAPITAL, THE SENSE RECORD and THE LINE.

With rare candor, and with much of the beauty that has distinguished her poetry for the past twenty years, Moxley embarks on--I was going to say a journey of exploration, but it's more than that, it's a sensory, systemic analysis of what it's like to be young, how your family can drive you mad, what it's life to want to write poetry, what it's like to fall desperately and severely in love (and what happens when you find the avant-garde of your dreams in San Diego, California). --Kevin Killian
An unguarded and intense captivity narrative of one person's seizure by Poetry. --Dan Bouchard
A love song to friendship, the Middle Room is a valuable and delicious literary history of recent community formations on the west coast. --Stephanie Young
