Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Penultimate Suitor Mary Leader strips away comfortable layers of poetic self-protection to arrive at a position of acute emotional self-conflagration. Each poem turns upon and returns to the infuriating and glorious correlations between love and art. Learning to love, learning to make art, trying to make beauty, trying to be a beauty-all these efforts call for passionate explorations in the schools of art and love.

About the Author

Mary Leader teaches at the University of Memphis and in the Warren Wilson Program for Writers; she was formerly a referee for the Oklahoma Supreme Court and Oklahoma assistant attorney general. Her first book, Red Signature, was selected for the National Poetry Series by Deborah Digges.
