Expert Review :

The poems in this collection have a level gaze. We smile at the foibles of people and relationships exposed here-the church organist, Snow White, the carefully balanced “un-couple”-yet finally we’re sympathetically implicated with them. Spare, quick-moving narratives carry us along for a day at the beach, a family reunion, a last ferry ride, each of which is more-is a key to the meaning of a life. Foos is particularly appealing when writing about flawed but loving families. These are deeply compassionate poems. Even a searing political poem-and it’s a knockout-gets its power as much from sorrow as from anger. After all, as Foos says, we’re just happy mutts, “looking for crowns for our efforts.” “These poems open with the relentless push of small flowers. They grow in a tight corner plot bright with iris, marigold, and brave truth.” -Michael R. Brown, author of The Man Who Makes Amusement Rides “I simply can’t resist a poet whose prayer is ‘Give us this day our daily bread/in the form of toast’-or who gives drowned virgins a second chance to ‘tread the mucky earth.’ Ellen Foos’ work combines startling candor with effervescent wit. She makes being human seem breathtakingly easy, a difficult task in a world as complicated and cluttered as our own. Read her and you can’t help but be refreshed. This is a book of small, big, and offbeat pleasures.” – Elaine Equi, author of The Cloud of Knowable Things
