The Moon Makes Its Own Plea (American Poets Continuum)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Moon Makes Its Own Plea is a departure from Wendy Mnookin’s previous work. Rather than considering a single experience that transforms her perception of her world (such as a child’s illness, a father’s death), Mnookin explores the idea of self and how that self is strengthened and challenged by relationships.

Although the book is still anchored in everyday life, the narrative is more fluid, making greater use of associative thinking.

Wendy Mnookin’s previous books include To Get Here (BOA Editions, 1999) and What He Took (BOA Editions, 2002), which won the New England Poetry Prize. Her website is www.wendymnookin.com.

Synopsis:

The winner of the 2002 New England Poetry Prize returns with a rich fourth collection of poems.

About the Author

Mnookin's work has been published in numerous journals, including The Greensboro Review, Harvard Review, and, Prairie Schooner. Anthology publications include Boomer Girls: Poems by Women from the Baby Boom Generation, Proposing on the Brooklyn Bridge: Poems about Marriage, and Urban Nature: Poems about Wildlife in the City. She holds an MFA from Vermont College and teaches writing workshops.
