Distributed for Carnegie Mellon University Press


Pretenders interweaves narrative, lyric, and fable in poems that tell their magical stories with revelatory rhythms and precise diction. Surreal and darkly funny, these powerful poems create a dense world full of pretense, menace, deception, and double truths—in which we are all struggling to love each other enough to survive another day.

128 pages | 5 1/2 x 8 1/2
