Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her debut collection of prose poetry, Mary A. Koncel invites her readers to gaze at life through a darkly humorous kaleidoscopic lens. Her eccentric characters long for salvation and insight, as they travel through landscapes and circumstances that are plainly surreal, but echo profoundly in reality. Each poem is a gauntlet, thrown down to challenge our perception and stop us in our tracks. This writer's literary voice is distinctive and significant, and sure to be a beacon in the years to come.

Mary A. Koncelreceived her MFA in poetry from Columbia College in Chicago. Ms. Koncel received a fellowship in poetry from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and her poems have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed first book of one of today's most imaginative and engaging prose poets. Mary Koncel is the Edward Hopper of prose poems, the geographer of . . . landscapes where the light is all wrong and human loneliness overwhelming. But just as we are going to despair, she finds a bright corner in which something extraordinary takes place. This is the grace of her poems.- Maxine Chernoff
