The portraits of family and marriage, and her canny meditations on language and the natural world, insinuate themselves in memory and won't let go -- Colette Inez.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Rebecca McClanahan is a seasoned writer whose poetry stories, and essays clearly establish her as one of the truly gifted. Naked As Eve is her latest collection of poems and represent her mastery for word imagery and ability to connect directly, intimately, and movingly with the reader. There Are Days: There are days when nothing/especially goes right but nothing/wrong, and you find yourself/writing to your sister-in-law/to thank her for the lemon cake/she baked that time, and for loving/your brother all these years./Three, maybe four times that day/you praise whoever is responsible/for letting you pee so easily,/without pain, without the tubes/and bags your uncle rolled on a cart/beside him that last year./You dig/in the garden until sweat pearls/your lip and you taste the salt/you have made, remembering the poem/a small girl wrote after her father was shot:/I love myself because I am not dead./In bed that night you spread your toes./The furnace of your brain warms/the pillow, the heart's engine ticks,/and the lungs, those meaty wings,/flutter and empty, flutter/and empty, lifting you into sleep.
