We Aren’t Who We Are – And This World Isn’t Either
Christine Korfhage

2007 • 172 pp. 6 x 9 1/4"

$16.00 Paperback, 978-1-933880-04-4

These poems tell the story of a colorful and often painful childhood spent traveling around the world in this first book by a newly minted poet and former artisan now living in New Hampshire.

“...Contradiction is built into the title of this book. So too is the question of being. Korfhage's work admits no easy answers. Her poetry is quirky, feminine, as many-eyed as the fly on the wall, as fast-paced and dramatic as any novel. Her language is deliberately colloquial, like the marvelous poets Marie Howe and Sharon Olds. It is elegant and achingly honest...always forging her own way.”—Liz Rosenberg
