I was immediately drawn to Lynn Emanuel’s latest book of poetry Noose and Hook because of the bright yellow cover with a picture of a barking dog on it. The cover, and the fact that it was published by University of Pittsburgh Press which has consistently put out smart poetry collections since 1936 by authors such as Denise Duhamel, Barbara Hamby, and Billy Collins. Noose and Hook is no exception to Pittsburgh’s stellar catalog.
Thumbing through the pages of my newly acquired review copies I came across the press release for Rachel Zucker’s latest book Museum of Accidents (Wave Books October 2009). It read “A brutally honest epic of domestic proportions.” I began reading the book and found a brutally honest account of marriage, motherhood, and daily life—the good and bad of it all expressed in a compelling urgency shouting from the pages to be heard.
Reading Barbara Hamby is like savoring a fine multi-course meal.
