by Maxine Cassin
160 pages $20
"In this collection of poems old and new, Maxine Cassin writes of everyday moments and objects that grow luminous in the surprise wit of her language. Electronic gadgets jostle Aldebaran and mosquitoes mingle with Lady Macbeth in poems that tease and haunt us with the quiet wisdom of this highly acclaimed poet."
Barbara C. Ewell, author of Kate Chopin.
