Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Poetry. Addonizio writes of herself, her passions and predicaments, without ever seeming 'confessional' or narcissistic, because what she relates is true of all mankind — especially womankind — Carolyn Kizer. Many of the poems in TELL ME can be read as intensified versions of the barroom ballad — songs of good and bad love, songs of the allure and the failure of drink. But regardless of the subject, Kim Addonizio's poems are stark mirrors of self-examination, and she looks into them without blinking — Billy Collins.

Synopsis:

Poems of loneliness and late nights, liquor and loss.
