Facts about the Moon: Poems by Dorianne Laux
Facts about the Moon: Poems

heather.edwards, April 23, 2007

the first modern poet i loved -- her first two books sent me spiraling through my ordinary life. i am an ordinary woman - the charmed product of a privileged childhood. but dorrianne laux, like the confessional poets before her, allowed the voyeur, the ordinary in all of us, to feel the horror and the awe of a life that must be survived. i was less taken with Smoke and am teeming with curiosity for this latest installment.
