The Uses of the BodyThe Uses of the Body by Deborah Landau

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


A brutally honest and journey through poetry of a woman's life. It captures the questioning soul striving for answers through being single, being married, and becoming a mother, and finding none. Throughout it is an acerbic, funny, provocative meditation on what being a woman means in contemporary life. Highly recommended.



The Falling Down DanceThe Falling Down Dance by Chris Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A strong collection of poems about the joys, fears, and hopes that come with parenthood. The poet compacts a lot of feeling and truth into very terse lines and the reader gets a sense of the whirlwind ride becoming a parent can be. Sharp and truthful.
