About the Author
--David Wojahn, author of Interrogation Palace: New and Selected Poems 1982-2004 "Lee Ann Roripaugh's On the Cusp of a Dangerous Year is a gorgeous, vibrant, and playful collection, filled with keen insights on everything from insect life to human chagrin to the measures of heartbreak. These poems delight and devastate with their incredible range of detail, their intensity, and their compassion."
--Bich Minh Nguyen, author of Stealing Buddha's Dinner
"The poems in Lee Ann Roripaugh's intimate pillow book shimmer and glitter, blurring the line between text and image. . . . Moths, spiders, cats, clouds, gumballs, ladybugs and lovers are woven into a vibrant pattern that juxtaposes the delicious with the illicit, the still life with the quick silverfish, the imperious antennae of ants with the furred curve of a peach. . . . Desire, along with its many disguises and tricks, is the hard, fierce center of this gorgeous canticle to earthly love."
--Maura Stanton, author of Immortal Sofa
Lee Ann Roripaugh's poems create a true book of seeing. Her poems show us the way toward redemption as they fill these pages with a life of discovery and meaning.
--Ray Gonzalez, author of Consideration of the Guitar: New and Selected Poems
