About the Author

Reviews

“Mary Leader brings a lovely music, a nearly limitless sense of invention, a ruthless taste for games, and a fantastic imagination to her signature second book—a work of high craftsmanship, of equally high desires and longings, of twin avidities, art and love.”—Edward Hirsch

“"The Penultimate Suitor" is terrifically fresh and engaging. This is a book that never allows the reader to catch his or her breath, one in which the speed of the thinking is matched by the urgency of the feeling. The speaker is lovelorn, grieving, bawdy, pleading, but never, never self-pitying. Mary Leader reminds us that there is much to be said for simply beautiful writing.” — Mark Levine
