Poetry. NOW, Molly Tenenbaum's second full-length collection of poetry, conjures the rare - life within a yellow ice cream truck, a bridge tender watching "masts thin out to threads" - and honors the commonplace. These poems deliver their news, their "nows," in language as haunting and buoyant as the melodies that Tenenbaum, and accomplished musician, knows so well. "Intelligent, playful, musical, these poems transform pain, sadness, and all the richness of the world into a made life, a work of art" -Sharon Bryan. Winner of The Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize 2007.
