Overview


Poetry. "Jennifer Perrine is a poet of formal agility and surprise, with a command of language that ranges from the spare to the luxuriously rampant, from the scientific to the ecstatic. THE BODY IS NO MACHINE--indeed! Here we see the sensual body in all its chameleon shades of gender and passion. These poems are exact, intelligent, vivid, thrilling--a first book to admire, and a poet to watch"--Betsy Sholl.
