Poetry. Christine Hamm's poetry brings the reader into a fairy tale world of dark and dangerous secrets, where a mother is a pile of sticks, a husband can be wished into a cat and a movie can be made from adolescent sexual experiences. Within the imaginative world of THE TRANSPARENT DINNER, Hamm reveals truths about a woman's intimacies and relationships.
