Friday Find: The Wrong Miracle by Liz Gallagher

The Wrong Miracle by Liz Gallagher

Short description/annotation:

From the cosmic to the domestic, from childhood flashback to adult matter-of-factness, from the simply chilling to the witty and authentic – cleverness and a surreal intensity entertain and enlighten, making Wrong Miracle an achievement of the amusing and the deep. These poems will tempt one to exclaim: ‘Ah, what a great thing for poems to do!’

I've had the pleasure of interviewing Gallagher over the last couple of weeks and should be reviewing her collection soon.

This book sounds like it would be very interesting. It's been a while since I just picked up a book of poetry. I think I shall make that one of my reading goals for 2010! Cheers!

Wow! That is a wonderful, thought-provoking testimonial. I seldom read poetry, although I do enjoy it.

Here are my picks.
