Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The thirty-three narrative, linguistically-adventurous poems in She Didn't Mean To Do It range freely among styles and voices. Examining human emotions and behavior in all their contradictions, Daisy Fried turns a perceptive eye on those around her. Fried integrates metaphoric flights and idiosyncratic narrative, surprising us with the details — "I saw that the wisteria/in dusk its same color hung (heavier than/the breasts of stabbed and stabber ever would be)" — while her characters traipse across lines and pages. These are poems about human relationships, mostly romantic and sexual. They're also about jobs and work: urban, action-packed, and socially aware.
