Tender Hooks Poems Synopsis

Beth Ann Fennelly is fearless in delineating the joys, absorptions, and-yes-jealousies of new motherhood.

Tender Hooks Poems Press Reviews

I love this book. Page after page, Fennelly gives us the elan of found language, behind which is a contrarian's passion for finding the true by working against the predictable. Stephen Dunn
