About the Author
Praise For The Dirt She Ate: Selected And New Poems (Pitt Poetry Series)…
"Hard-edged and provocative. . . . Never sentimental or histrionic, Pratt’s poems deal directly and explicitly with issues of anger, shame, sexuality, and injustice."
--San Francisco Bay Area Reporter
“Pratt writes with candescent intensity, almost unfettered feeling and graphic frankness. . . . She is slave to passion and proud of the fact.”
—Raleigh News & Observer
“Like a long-awaited visit from a dear friend, a new volume of poems by Minnie Bruce Pratt is always a time to celebrate. . . . Each of these poems is its own painting, its own snapshot, a light turned on some unexpected longing.”
—Lambda Book Report
