Reviews

Chelsea Rathburn is canny about so many things, the body, the small town, the structure of memory, the relationship between a mother and her child, and even the maternal feelings of Medea. Few poets can write with such frankness and good humor about their physical being and at the same time reveal their souls. Art, parenting, marriage, the imprint of memory, the violence that hovers in the background of American life, all are expressed in poems made so well that you will shake your head with admiration for their craft. Hers is an art of sanity and clarity and is more welcome now than ever.--Mark Jarman, author of The Heronry
