Poetry. "Ann Townsend writes the romance of 'everyday' life in DIME STORE EROTICS but the exquisite act of her affection makes every minute a precipice, every detail an opening door—not into the dime store but out into the spinning original dimensions of her lyric consciousness. She is an intoxicating poet."—Carol Muske
