Overview

Shoulder Season by Ange Mlinko

“In Ange Mlinko’s Shoulder Season observation and metaphor are always on edge. . . . The poems are at once formally engaged, playful, and disturbing. It’s a wild ride and a great read.”—Rae Armantrout

With a title that plays upon “shouldering” one’s burden, this equally fanciful and hard-hitting collection captures the uncertainties and economic turmoil of twenty-first-century life, where the mind might still be “a little spa,” but the future “is hedged against the / boys who died.”

A longtime East Coast resident and language columnist for The Nation , Ange Mlinko currently lives in Beirut. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker , The London Review of Books , Poetry , and elsewhere.
