Poetry. Women's Studies. This is Diana Whitney's debut book of poems—praised as a "saucily entitled and brilliant book...What a debut!" by Vermont Poet Laureate Sydney Lea, a debut with "a tremulous spirit full of...imaginative agitation" adds Major Jackson, and "one of the finest collections I've read in a very long time" says Laura Kasischke. We highly recommend this title for classes and individuals. Narrative, provocative, revealing: perhaps Plath, Sexton, Olds, Frost have combined.
Diana Whitney graduated from Dartmouth College and Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar. She also studied in the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College. She lives in Southern Vermont with her family. WANTING IT is her first book. Author City: BRATTLEBORO, VT USA
