If I had known the author as well as I did in 2002 at the time of this book's publication, I would have thought she was psychic given her positions on America and the world today.

With a riveting title as Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman's Poems, one expects, and is rewarded, in a most visceral way, with a collection of poems and essays, that is actually a series of pulse marks of the human pen (Graham herself). I would have not seen this book if not become aware of it in the New York Times Book section and ordered it immediately. Glad I did. You don't have to like poetry to 'get' this book -You just have to be drawn to pure vibracy, a rich but spare literacy, and celebrate the sheer gusto and spirit that leaps forth from every page. Graham eloquently speaks for herself but scads of 'Tidal women' (read this poem first!) in this volume of poetry that choreographs in prose, life passages: the good and the bad, the real and the ironic - it is all grist for the author's mill. Graham emerges in a multi faceted way and her poems, while at once her unique voice, are shades of Every Woman (well every woman with unharnassed spirit and an succinct world view) - and every woman, nay anyone who ever ended up at the wall and back, will appreciate her unflinching stare at herself and own foibles/defeats and victories, and the world beyond. Divine and damned - it is all documented in Hell Hath No Fury, once and clearly, leaving the reader in a that certain stillness that results whenever truth is uttered

If you think poetry is from an era past when gentle pastorial verses ruled (or stuff that is so esoteric you simply scratch your head), you need to get this book, pronto. Here is a collection of literatized life passages from a woman who at once is articulating what many have felt but not dare utter (are you called 'difficult'? or 'too much? - this book is for you) -but offering up good writing and bold perceptions with it. A spirited, wholly human work - that is as riveting as it is honest. Buy one for yourself and one for a mother, friend, sister, daughter.
