Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Mary Leader's book Red Signature is an astonishing gift. In it she cherishes, presents, gives back to everyone the brilliant common life that almost nobody but Mary Leader can see and make known. The poems are elegant, utterly without concealment and pride, open without hesitation or qualification to the great world. To read her book is to recover some part of the lost treasure of experience."--Allen Grossman

"The cadences and silences of Red Signature are the work of a remarkably exacting listener. With its accomplished music, its generosity of feeling, and its witty, insightful love of the things of this world, Mary Leader's first book will delight and instruct any reader."--Susan Stewart

"The best poems in this book are like looking at a great John Ford film: something elemental within American experience, something born in deprivation but capable of possessing grandeur, has found classic expression. See (perhaps best of all) 'Among Things Held at Arm's Length.' Mary Leader's book beautifully and eloquently recovers a world in the act of discovering her distance from it."--Frank Bidart

Mary Leader makes her home in Norman, Oklahoma, and is currently the Creative Writing Fellow for Poetry at Emory University, in Atlanta, Georgia, where she also lectures in law. Red Signature is her first book of poems.

Synopsis:

"One of five winners of the 1996 National Poetry Series (chosen by Deborah Digges) Mary Leader's poetry sets out to collect signatures left by the nooks and crannies of history: recipe cards, a self-starved man's last will, a schoolteacher's ditty. "An astonishing gift". — Allen Grossman
