About the Author
"Consider the Body, Winged is a paradoxical wonder . . . On difficult subjects-incarceration, hauntings, & nervous daughter's tender queries-Jessica Pierce writes with elegant accessibility, putting our fragile human existence into a ratio of perspective. As soon as the final stanza stopped reverberating in my heart - it was as if I didn't have a choice - I started over."
-Kevin Phan, author of Dears, Beloveds
"Jessica Pierce's poems have a kinship with the birds and insects she often summons in them-the red paper wasp, a hummingbird . . . Her work has the winged creature's trick of inhabiting the moment while engaged in the necessary, future-focused activity of building the nest and nurturing the young."
-Nan Cohen, author of Unfinished City
