About this title


Book by Cleary, Suzanne

From the Back Cover:

"I have long been anticipating this first book and the chance to express how highly I value Suzanne Cleary's poetry. Her poems have a vigorous forward roll to them and are strung together by daring chains of association. It is refreshing to read a poet who wants to hide nothing, to turn over all the cards at once. High time she had a book, a place for her original voice to echo." BILLY COLLINS

Suzanne Cleary's poetry is rich and full and tactile. we find ourselves settling in, eager to eavesdrop on the events she illuminates and shadows with measured, seamless craft. And we come to an understanding of the unique talent that resides in this poet. Here is poetry that is immensely readable and enjoyable. DAN MASTERSON

Suzanne Cleary's Keeping Time gives us memory retrieved with intense clarity and understated grace. Whether she is contemplating a 1932 photograph of Frieda Kahlo and Diego Rivera in Detroit during a solar eclipse, recalling TV cooking shows, Gertrude Stein, her grandparents'lawn chairs, or films of the 1920s, her artistry keeps time at bay, bringing a well-tuned ear and quiet incandescence to the work. I salute this book with joy." COLETTE INEZ
