About the Author
Praise For This Blue: Poems…
“These are poems that keep you on your toes . . . McLane renders each phrase with the precise and steady hand of an ice sculptor. Her consummate finesse can be a source of delight.” —Jeff Gordinier, The New York Times Book Review
“*Starred Review* "The third poetry collection from McLane (Same Life; World Enough) is replete with searching poems--"how can I be in this world?"--and poems celebrating nature and travel . . . An exciting collection that celebrates the extraordinary in the ordinary.” —Doris Lynch, Library Journal
“Beginning with "a chair,/ a table, grass," and ending in the "wild way" of the woods, McLane's latest poetry collection is a progressive push into the unknown. Her consistency of voice, an amalgam of neoformal rhyme and contemporary bravado, serves as an anchor throughout the book's five sections, each of which explores a new setting and subject pairing.” —Publishers Weekly
