Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Winner the 2010 University of Wales Dylan Thomas Prize. Winner of the 2009 Cleveland State University Poetry Center First Book Prize Selected by D. A. Powell. Written in part while Fenton's husband was deployed as a medic in Baghdad, CLAMOR loosely follows the narrative arc of weeks breathlessly suspended between imminences: word or silence, return or tragedy, heartbreak or gratitude. Yet these are poems that refuse to be sentimental or didactic. Instead, they marry with lyric ferocity the personal and the political in an examination of language and love in 21st century wartime.
