Reviews

"Karen Lee's "In Medias Res is an etude on blindness and enlightenment....Its taxonomic daring is vintage Stein....Lee's strange and gemological arrangements [are] the measure of her gift: the book as a whole seeks to find words for a woman's loss of her sight, and the human capacity to make sense of the patterns and accidents of life....Best of all, Lee has a fine paronomastic flair. She highlights but does not belabor the affinities between words....Where other might find 'blind fortune, ' Lee finds 'unseen wealth.'"
--From the Introduction by Heather McHugh
