Jill's New Book:
The Gravity of Flesh

Jill Breckenridge embraces the world with her eyes open. Her robust poems laugh, wonder, lament, but they do not blink. Some of the poems seem Chaucerian, especially the title sequence about the State Fair. I can't get them out of my mind, their characters bawdy and bold, wounded and proud. No one else has written them. This book is exhilarating. — Sondra Zeidenstein, Poet, A Detail in that Story
