“A few lines can hardly suggest the richness and reach of these steel-cut, powerful poems: acutely personal while swimming in the shark-infested waters of history; fierceness matched by delicacy of feeling and perception—‘a fist of white flowers;’ the lines as taut as the laces of skates on which a difficult balance depends—‘so much pleasure lacing the skates / to the perfect tension;’ the work of an intellect as sophisticated as it is passionate—‘someday they’ll map the brain drowning / in the heart’s blood.’ The Pocket Gospel is good news for poetry.”—Eleanor Wilner

Pamela Sutton taught writing at the University of Pennsylvania until 2008, and is now working on writing novels and a book of poems. She lives in Pennsylvania with her daughter Emily, and is a contributing editor to The American Poetry Review.
