“In Ange Mlinko’s Shoulder Season observation and metaphor are always on edge. . . . The poems are at once formally engaged, playful, and disturbing. It’s a wild ride and a great read.”—Rae Armantrout

With a title that plays upon “shouldering” one’s burden, this equally fanciful and hard-hitting collection

Overview

“In Ange Mlinko’s Shoulder Season observation and metaphor are always on edge. . . . The poems are at once formally engaged, playful, and disturbing. It’s a wild ride and a great read.”—Rae Armantrout

With a title that plays upon “shouldering” one’s burden, this equally fanciful and hard-hitting collection captures the uncertainties and economic turmoil of twenty-first-century life, where the mind might still be “a little spa,” but the future “is hedged against the / boys who died.”

A longtime East Coast resident and language columnist for The Nation, Ange Mlinko currently lives in Beirut. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The London Review of Books, Poetry, and elsewhere.
