About this title


In the dark poetry of her newest collection, Sue Owen imagines the devil's brooding, the last nail in a coffin, and the musings of shooting stars. Owen turns proverbial sayings (in "Getting to the Point," "Until Hell Freezes Over," or "If the Other Shoe Drops") into fully developed parables that examine and elaborate upon the assumptions we all make. This is a cookbook with recipes that instruct, where hell becomes a kitchen of wisdom and insight. The heat in these poems reminds us of the evil in our contemporary lives and challenges us to look straight at it, without fear.

Sue Owen 's previous poetry collections are Nursery Rhymes for the Dead, The Book of Winter, and My Doomsday Sampler.
