About this title


Janell Moon's collection of poetry travel across a broad landscape on fluid language and surprising combinations. From the how a mother provokes to the sweet memory of a forbidden nude nighttime swim, to the fantasy of wedding gone homoerotically awry, each poem is a piquant story seen through the window as the world flashes by. Moon's skill is evoking such a wide array of feelings-anxiety, desire, nostalgia, bemusement-it is our own lives flashing before us.Jewelle Gomez, author of The Gilda Stories Janell Moon's poems are crammed with a lifetime of everyday yeaning, secret little female intimacies and personal history that positively rumbles with quiet power. This poetry is alive and electric.Michelle Tea, author of Rose of No Man's Land In these poems celebrating Janell Moon's brimming life, we meet many ordinary, unique, loved people: her grandma who makes corsets for movie starts (Judy Garland, Loretta Young), her sister, dressed as her "favorite striped shorts" on the laundry line, Janell herself as a young girl who "held her silence," Janell as a wife whose "passion was covered with the heel of America's secrets." Because they detail the necessity of that secrecy, these poems are political as well as personal. They are lyrical and sweet-and honest. Through they chronicle her life, they succeed as poems, intense and spare, rich in their psychological understanding, not burdened with plodding analysis. I like a lot her found poem from a KQED broadcast, Janell Moon grabs poetry wherever she finds it.Phyllis Koestenbaum, author of Doris Day and Kitschy Melodies
