Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982115598, Paperback)

"You will be impressed by the intelligent, arresting poems in Burned House With Swimming Pool. They are so finely crafted their language shapes the public voice of personal experience with both clarity and complexity. In the poet's coming to grips with the successes and failures of middle age and middle America, she views life with the microscopic intensity only great writers can achieve." - Ai Lisa Lewis's books include The Unbeliever (University of Wisconsin Press, Brittingham Prize), Silent Treatment (Penguin, National Poetry Series), and Vivisect, (New Issues Press). A chapbook titled Story Box was also published as winner of the Poetry West Chapbook Contest. Her work has appeared in numerous literary magazines, including Kenyon Review, Washington Square, Third Coast, American Literary Review, Fence, Seattle Review, and Rattle, as well as a Pushcart Prize anthology and two editions of Best American Poetry. She has also won awards from the American Poetry Review and the Missouri Review. She directs the creative writing program at Oklahoma State University and serves as poetry editor for the Cimarron Review.
