Whore

Poems
By Sarah  Maclay
Winner of the Tampa Review Prize for Poetry. This first book by Sarah Maclay captures intimations of love both fleeting and mysterious in poems of longing, rapture, heart-wreck, and self-confrontation. 
 
 
The judges praised her poems as “spectacular in their execution” and in their “hunger for unexpected disclosures.” William Olsen writes, “The poems in Sarah Maclay’s astonishing book insist on life, line by line, phrase by phrase.” Mary Ruefle describes them as “elegant, evocative poems, delivered in the lower register, rich and dense with drunken language.” And Roger Weingarten concludes “Maclay’s Whore is a street-smart Frank O'Hara Lazarused to L.A. with an ear for random possibilities, telling and sensuously imagine detail.”
