Tender Hooks Poems by Beth Ann Fennelly


Tender Hooks Poems by Beth Ann Fennelly

Beth Ann Fennelly is fearless in delineating the joys, absorptions, and-yes-jealousies of new motherhood. Having studied motherhood as if for an exam, reality proved wilder and deeper and funnier than anything she'd anticipated.Tender Hooks is Fennelly's spirited exploration of parenting, with all its contradictions and complexities.


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
