Facing the Facts by Laurie Blauner


Madeline DeFrees recommends
Facing the Facts, poems by Laurie Blauner: "Laurie Blauner's fourth collection includes fifty-seven poems, ranging from largely tranquil domestic scenes to the stark contrast of the final section, in which she explores the characters and situations of
Frankenstein. Mary Shelley's horror tale seems eerily relevant to the marvels and terrors of twenty-first-century genetic science with its talk of stem cell organ production and human cloning." (Orchisis)
