Postage Due (Marie Alexander Poetry #16)
Postage Due is a dazzling series of necessary utterances. Wade uses the language of Christianity to section her book, fraught with joy and pain, to explore what we owe and to whom. She employs postcards, letters, and literary and pop culture heroines--most notably Oz's Dorothy--to tell and retell of the dreamlike past. In Postage Due, you will meet the (post-confessional) young lady who fell from a star.--Denise Duhamel
Postage Due is a sometimes ekphrastic, often epistolary scrapbook of poetic artifacts documenting an odd girl's coming of age.
Julie Marie Wade is the author of two collections of lyric nonfiction, Wishbone: A Memoir in Fractures and Small Fires.
