“Here is The White Eyelash, proving that a poet can carefully sustain solid inventive work from book to book, poem to poem. . . . Syntax is all: Out of its altering patterns deep insight occurs again and again. Insouciant and ambitious, Kinsolving steers her dappled craft to safe harbor.” Carol Muske-Dukes, The Los Angeles Times Book Review

An astonishing second collection from the author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist
Susan Kinsolving’s first collection, Dailies & Rushes, was hailed as a remarkable debut by The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Wall Street Journal, and named a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. In her new work, The White Eyelash, she turns the extremes of her recent experiences into poems of harsh factuality. This dark narrative sequence is highly contrasted by the humor presented in a section called “Light Fare and Oddballs.” Once again, Kinsolving exhibits a daunting range with signature style and substance.
