New and Selected Poems
Maggie Anderson's wonderful collection of new and selected poems, Windfall, possesses a huge, spellbinding, honed acuity and aesthetic certainty. Always cutting to the quick of modern flux, her poems elevate the natural brilliance of small things in our lives, urban and pastoral, or at the heart of a shifting emotional landscape. Windfall tells an extended story without sacrificing the lyricism of good poetry. Direct and spare, this volume hits the mark. We can be thankful for this windfall.
