Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 1996 Lambda Book Award for Lesbian Poetry.

“With poignancy, honesty, and grace, Becker contends with the messy implications of her lesbian sexuality, Jewish identity, and sister's suicide. . . . Becker is acutely aware of, and devastated by, her many losses, but emerges defiant and admirably without regret or shame.”

—Boston Review

Synopsis:

'All-American Girl is a lively mix of poems that reflect Robin Becker's sexual and social identity in startling and often magically apt metaphors. The Philadelphia of her girlhood, her ancestral links to the shtetls of Eastern Europe, the mesas of New Mexico, her loved landscape, Italy... meet and meld in surprising, satisfying juxtapositions. This is Robing Becker's best work to date.' As said by Maxine Kumin.

About the Author

Robin Becker, professor of English and women’s studies at The Pennsylvania State University, is the author of six collections of poetry, including The Horse Fair, All-American Girl, and Giacometti’s Dog. In 2002, the Frick Art and Historical Center in Pittsburgh published Venetian Blue, a limited-edition chapbook of Becker’s art poems. Becker is the recipient of individual fellowships from the Bunting Institute, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2000, she won the George W. Atherton III Award for Excellence in Teaching from Penn State. For the Women's Review of Books, Becker writes a column on poetry called “Field Notes” and serves as poetry editor.
