9781934695302: Instructions for Preparing Your Skin

Poetry. Winner of the 2011 Philip Levine Prize for Poetry. "Ariana Nadia Nash's INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING YOUR SKIN is an exquisitely passionate first book. Mostly I am struck by the lyrical frankness of the poems, and how they sustain an uncanny purity and yet are totally down to earth."—Malena Mörling

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING YOUR SKIN is a startling book in which so much is at stake. Love poems morph into hate poems into indifference poems then back again into deeper love poems. Nash's stark raw material is transformed into verse as honest and clear as the mirrors in which we recognize ourselves. There is no way to prepare for these striking poems that strike against any temporary assuredness we may have about our bodies and each other. INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING YOUR SKIN is candid, revelatory, and uncompromising in its vision."—Denise Duhamel, judge, 2011 Philip Levine Prize in Poetry
