Letters from the Emily Dickinson Room (White Pine Press Poetry Prize)by Kelli Russell Agodon
Synopses & Reviews
"Agodon's book is a bright, funny, touching meditation on loss, love, and the power of words. Her genius is in the interweaving of God and Vodka, bees and bras, astronomy and astrology, quotes from Einstein and Dickinson, a world in which gossip rags in checkout lines and Neruda hum in the writer's mind with equal intensity."—Jeannine Hall Gailey
"These are poems of remarkable liveliness. Here is a fresh, distinctive voice that is consistently engaging and surprising."—Carl Dennis
Kelli Russell Agodon is the author of Small Knots and Geography and lives in a seaside community in the Pacific Northwest.
A bright, funny, touching meditation on loss, love, and the power of words.
