Poetry. "In this strong follow-up to her earlier collection Yellow, Seattle poet Anne Pitkin effortlessly ranges from etudes based on art, music and fairy tales to deceptively domestic narrative poems of mother and daughter, wife and husband.... In their imagistic tableaux, these mature poems' lucent language and imagery reveal in their turning facets the poet and our world"—Sean Bentley.
Anne Pitkin grew up in Clarksville, TN, and earned her bachelor's and master's degrees from Vanderbilt University. She earned a second master's from Antioch University in 1988. She has worked both as a community college instructor and as a psychotherapist. WINTER ARGUMENTS (Ahadada Books, 2011) is her third collection after Yellow (Arrowood Books, 1989) and the chapbook Notes for Continuing the Performance (Jawbone Press, 1977). Her work has appeared in Poetry, Prairie Schooner, Alaska Quarterly Review, and many others. A mother of three, grandmother of two, she currently lives in Seattle, where she plays jazz piano with her friends. Author City: SEATTLE, WA USA
