About Burned House with Swimming Pool:

"You will be impressed by the intelligent, arresting poems in Burned House With Swimming Pool. They are so finely crafted their language shapes the public voice of personal experience with both clarity and complexity. In the poet’s coming to grips with the successes and failures of middle age and middle America, she views life with the microscopic intensity only great writers can achieve."
