Poet Major Jackson refers to the poems in Jenny Browne's newest collection as “angel-fisted lyrics,” and this evocative phrase captures both the tough and rapturous sides of her work. With poems of memory and narrative, thought and feeling, Jenny Browne has shaped another powerful book.
Poet and professor Stephen Burt of Harvard University writes, “Her poems retain the unpredictability not of a roulette wheel or a supernova, but of a quirky, wise friend in another city, one whose reactions surprise us even once we know her well enough to trust her well.”
Jenny Browne is the author of two previous collections, At Once
and The Second Reason
. She lives in San Antonio, Texas and is an Associate Professor of English at Trinity University.
