Poetry. "Patricia Carlin combines an adventurous sense of form with an unmistakably personal voice of sharp wit and subtle intelligence. She draws on everything from fairy tales, to the techniques of Oulipo, to transformations of the work of others such as Virginia Woolf. The poems can be playful; but there is also a disquieting beauty to these lyrics"--Elaine Equi. "Patricia Carlin's poems are a pulse-taking scan of experimental forms metabolically torqued to breaking point. QUANTUM JITTERS comes with needful phrases, 'negations,' mini-arguments that expand on contact, where the smallest wisp of a word turns out to be a good straw to grasp. Readers will find here a homeopathic remedy for our disaster-prone quantum universe"--Elizabeth Macklin.
