Poetry. "In NO BLUES THIS RAUCOUS SONG the language is as fresh and succulent as a cut pear. Wagner's work is full of joy. It is also full of soulfulness and sorrow, but these are packed into lines of such delicacy and tautness that even woe sings like a plucked string. As I was reading, I realized that I was in the presence of a small classic"---Lynn Emanuel. "Lynn Wagner's poems deftly honor our unruly impulses. She has a marvelous ear for rhythmic urgencies of the American tongue and a wicked wit. No word goes unnoticed on her shrewd yet passionate watch"--Baron Wormser.
