"Carol Levin's An Undercurrent of Jitters is a book of poems about weddings and
marriages, whether longed for or forced or joyfully jumped into, whether failed
or extremely happy. The poems are engaging, insightful, and well-wrought--a joy
to read."
--Priscilla Long, author of Crossing Over: Poems

"The 'undercurrent of jitters' serving as Carol Levin's title belongs to strangers at
a USO dance in Texas shortly before the young men leave for war. Two of these
strangers become a couple and join the confluences of encounters, indelible
moments, narratives, and palpable atmospheres characterizing the complex
terrain of marriage. Peaks and troughs as well as nerves beneath the surface of the
poems illuminate the how and why, and sometimes the confusion, of intention
and commitment. Levin's attuned eye and ear navigate unfolding explorations
leading back, forward, or within myriad instances relating to wedlock. These
poems comprise a mosaic of inlaid particulars alive with authentic memorable
human resonances."
--Joan Fiset, author of Namesake
