Poetry. Joanna Fuhrman's recent work has appeared in Lungful!, Hanging Loose, Puerto del Sol, Fence and the Carnegie-Mellon anthology American Poetry: Next Generation. This is her first book. Joanna Fuhrman's is a starkly original voice, vivid with the tensions of wit and empathy, sly incongruity and intellectual passion. FREUD IN BROOKLYN marks a stunning debut -- Linda Bierds.
