About this title

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2010 Plan B Press Poetry Chapbook Contest, House explores what a house is and the many variations of a home.

Review:

What I loved in House was its central metaphor, the way the poems flexed and explored the theme, which included physical houses, dream houses, Jungian archetype houses, houses of childhood, rented houses, a house turned into a restaurant, houses visited while traveling, famous houses (Frank Gehry's Dancing House in Prague). And then there were poems about the things that furnish a house: "Chairs," windows ("Opening Out"), attic staircases ("Passage"), pajamas, backyards with birds at the feeder and trees that "burn beautifully in their dying." [fill in the name of the author] writes, "I want to think that life can just spread out / sometimes, sleepy and shiny, voluptuous," and I do, too. Bravo! --Barbara Crooker, author of Radiance and Line Dance
