Poetry. Foreword by Harold Bloom "Lucid, yet luscious; rich, yet modest; full of spiritual insight, yet empty of bossy certainty, Serpas's book of love and death in a Louisiana landscape is as savory and abundant as the rhythms she employs" - Molly Peacock "Like Elizabeth Bishop, her strong precursor, Martha Serpas practices a severely chastened art of poetry . . . I am moved to prophesy a considerable poetic development for her"- from the Foreword by Harold Bloom.
