Poetry. The dress of INSIDE THE YELLOW DRESS is both the clothing of childhood, of girlhood in particular, and the garment of language we all put on. "This is a book about expectations, about not having any, and about how the language gives us more than we deserve anyway: 'Her mouth is, moving toward / everything.' Everything is just about right to describe the scope of this voice, this amazing book by one of our truly significant poets" - Bin Ramke.
