Poetry. "CLEAVAGE is erotic, intelligent, self-aware and acutely conscious with ahothouse femme expertise. Vernacular and current, literary and erudite, Tysh's references serve her immediate images in one deft sketch after another, showing us women in their most intimate relations to themselves, their lives, and circumstances. Tysh is possessed of a singular sensual intellect, now fully mature, and going at full throttle"--Johanna Drucker. Tysh, born and raised in Paris, a student of American literature at the Sorbonne, author of a critical study of Allen Ginsberg, was naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 1998. She teaches writing and women's studies at Wayne State University in Detroit. She is a 2003 National Endowment for the Arts fellow.
