Christmas gift alert: My poetry collection Flatlands is on sale at Black Lawrence Press this week for $7.95. Best for the lover of spareness and open spaces. Bonus: Supporting an excellent small press!
My poetry chapbook, Nursewifery, is now available for purchase from Jacar Press via their website. The cool thing about Jacar is that they donate their book sale proceeds to a variety of charities. Here's the description of the collection:
Wife, mother, nurse—these words invoke the vision of a woman giving of herself to sustain another with love, tenderness, care. Written in the voice of a military nurse, Nursewifery, speaks from the perspective of a woman whose job and gender prime her to view acts of nurturing as the highest of callings. The poems explore the way feminine roles both fit and restrict. Like the sutures that close a wound, this collection seeks to find a new way to envision acts of care, healing, and a woman’s capacity.
