Ivory Cradle by Anne Marie Macari


Gerald Stern recommends
Ivory Cradle, poems by Anne Marie Macari: "Winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Prize, judged by Robert Creeley. Beautiful lyric poems, explosive, visionary. From an original viewpoint of a woman in her forties, with three young sons. Subjects are events in her life-divorce, mothering, 'memory,' often of Italy, and religion. Best first book I've seen in twenty years." (Copper Canyon)
