Poetry. PURR is Mary Ann Samyn's fourth book of poetry. "This poetry hovers between irony and true despair" - Lynn Emanuel. "Here is a poetry built of sensory data so sharply honed as to make even the mundane microfibre or the quotidian stone path a journey, a finding, a deep understanding of the world. And who couldn't love a book where Doris Day and Nancy Sinatra are as essential and mysterious as saints?"- D.A. Powell
