Publisher Comments:

"Open and read Julie Carr's finely wrought Equivocal.Such intimate, ambitious, impeccable, evocative writing!"-Carol Snow

Julie Carr's second collection explores the elements of chance and mystery that determine human identity and relationships. In delving into the human fascination with the self's story and the boundaries between the self and others (including family), these poems pose often unanswerable questions, but the reader delights in the wit and artistry used to explore them.

From "House/Boat":

. . . The night soon lost its head. I said,
I'm here. Pulling up now,

parking, as it were,
looking for something to eat, to redeem.

The wind shook the seedpod but the seedpod
wasn't moved.

And though I thought I'd done the damage I was born for,

there was still so much to step through,
so much to mar.

Julie Carr's first book, Mead: An Epithalamion,won the University of Georgia Press'contemporary poetry prize for 2004. Her poems have appeared in such journals as Volt, American Letters & Commentary, Pool, Verse, The Iowa Review, Boston Review,andTriQuarterly.She earned an MFA in poetry from New York University and a PhD from UC Berkeley.

Ms. Carr's writing has a way of encouraging its reader. Her poems demonstrate that poetry can be functional: it can mediate between being terrified to be a parent/woman/person and actually being one or all of those things. This book is serious, intelligent, and beautiful, which is refreshing since it is about regular life, which Carr proves can be all those things.
