Reviews / Endorsements

“These are wry, always engaging, and quietly compassionate poems which ground themselves in the essential surreality of American life –– its eerily pristine suburban lawns, its disheveled rites of passage, its 'UFOologists' and wacky roadside attractions. It's a landscape we may all know, but Sorby's flair and command of particulars make us see it anew––and in all of its bittersweet complexity. Sorby is a sly and graceful poet, and Distance Learning is a book of unusual promise.”—David Wojahn

ANGELA SORBY is associate professor of English at Marquette University. She is author of two books, Distance Learning and Schoolroom Poets: Childhood, Performance, and the Place of American Poetry.
