Poetry. Janell Moon's is an absolutely original voice. With wicked humor and a compassionate eye, Janell deftly tackles the conundrums of family, lesbian love, aging. She brings to her writing the raw, risky honesty that only a strong poet can. Roaming from her girlhood in a small Ohio town, to dreams after a friend's suicide, to the tricky balance on a San Francisco hillside, she confronts the fractures of identity and how we make our place in the world --Dorthy Wall. When morning broke, there was a moment/ when light and dark shone in balance/ and if we really focused,/ we could see what was left,/ what was worthy. (The Burning).

What People are Saying About This
Janell Moon's poetry unwraps the mysteries of the ordinary. It is at once familiar, and full of surprises. She shows us, again and again, that indeed we can get there from here. (Diane di Prima, New Spiralbound from RemPress)
