Friday Finds: Unmentionables by Beth Ann Fennelly

Unmentionables by Beth Ann Fennelly

Synopsis (Amazon.com)

A pretty babysitter’s boyfriend gives a young, nightgown-clad girl in her charge a ride on his motorcycle, thus igniting the wild heart of a poet. Or so Fennelly describes in a poem titled “When Did You Know You Wanted to Be a Writer?” Insouciant, sexy, funny, and dead-on, Fennelly crafts perfectly metered lines and quick-turn stanzas steeped in the blues and rock and roll in which she riffs on sights, sounds, and moments at once ordinary and suffused with implication.
