“McClung’s poetry walks on a tightrope of original knowledge, stretched between irrational poles. Her poetry lives at the center and furthest edges of human experience. Often while reading this book I thought, ‘She’s wrong about that.’ Ten seconds later I thought, ‘No, she’s right.’ Read her poetry, then look in the mirror: you are not the same person. Sometimes her songs are comedy, sometimes tragedy; they are not opposites. Tears and laughter opposites? Many of the poems are mysterious, passionate love poems, and there are war poems.”—Stanley Moss

Laren McClung is a poet from Philadelphia. She is co-editor of the anthology, Inheriting the War. She has led workshops in poetry at Goldwater Hospital on Roosevelt Island and in the Creative Writing Program at New York University. She currently teaches in New York City.
