Poetry. "Janna Plant's mixed genre book (are these diary entries poems or are they stories? are they, in fact, diary entries?) is structured around two fields of metaphor: the refinery and the human body. The awkwardness of the fit between oil refinery and human body is intended; both systems are significant for the processes they engender. The aptly named Plant (version and subversion both of manufacturing) casts doubt on traditional notions of refinement--girl refined into woman into wife into mother--and in so doing gives us a poignant, playful look into adolescence in a Los Angeles oil town"--Susan M. Schultz.

About the Author:

Born in Santa Monica, raised in Los Angeles, educated on O`ahu, Janna Plant enjoys investigating fictions of coherence, whether they be textual, physical, or identity-related. She also enjoys toying with the coherence of fiction--testing its boundaries--as she does here, in The Refinery. Currently working towards an MFA in Writing & Poetics at Naropa University, she has poems forthcoming in Tinfish 19 (Tinfish Press) and Spontaneous Collaborations: A Statehood Project (Fat Ulu Productions).
