Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"What I like best about Sandra Alcosser's poetry is that it always draws me back, in its beauty and mystery, for the pleasure of rereading and rereading it. The stitching that binds the elements within each of her poems is sure and subtle, as invisible and perfect as the stitching that creates a forest or the threads that link the stars. The poems in Except by Nature are full of the riches and the risks, the words and the contemplations of the earth, and the place of the human within those realms." Pattiann Rogers

"Except by Nature is an exceptional collection: feisty, accomplished, and mature, its poems brim with serious delights." Eamon Grennan

"Sandra Alcosser's superbly sure-voiced poems possess intelligence and passion in equal measure, and they explore, question, surprise, and inform in utterly distinctive ways. Here is a poet who knows the fine-grained textures of thought, the precise distinctions of feeling, and the lush wisdom of language itself. Specific and grounded in the things of the world, yet winged with imaginative mind, Except by Nature is an extraordinary work." Jane Hirshfield

Sandra Alcosser's first book, A Fish to Feed All Hunger, was selected by James Tate as the AWP Award Series Winner in Poetry. Her work has appeared in the American Poetry Review, the New Yorker, the Paris Review, Poetry, and the Pushcart Prize series. Alcosser lives in Montana, and teaches in the graduate writing program at San Diego State University.

Synopsis:

"Whether immersed in the exotic claustrophobia and sexual edginess of a Louisiana bayou or smelling again the sweat of workers in her father's garage, or remembering an aunt's passion for extravagant hats . . . Sandra Alcosser always gives us poems vivid with what she calls 'the tangible feel / of being alive.' EXCEPT BY NATURE is an exceptional collection: feisty, accomplished, and mature, its poems brim with serious delights".--Eamon Grennan.
