What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"You'll want to lie down in Carmelita McGrath's new book. By turns seductive, funny, keen and wild, these poems pull us close, all "smoke and shadow and shimmer-shape." And they're a tribute to dailyness — a man in a clinic filling out a form for a luxury car, lovestruck graffiti on a wall, a woman in a grocery store choosing hearts of palm. Escape Velocity is a rare achievement." — Anne Simpson, author of Is and Quick
