My Window Seat for Arlena Twigg

by James Reidel
 

Poetry. "MY WINDOW SEAT FOR ARLENA TWIGG is as eccentric as its title. It is also brilliant—poem after poem of compression and a rare, quirky intensity of feeling. This book is long overdue (he has been serving our literature in other ways) from a poet who has learned his trade, his craft, and makes his own indelible music."—Thomas Lux
