"Leaning into the Wind is a series of ten intimate essays in which Susan Allen Toth, who was spent most of her life in Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, reveals the ways in which weather has challenged and changed her perceptions about herself and the world around her. She describes her ever-growing awareness of and appreciation for how the weather marks the major milestones of her life. Toth explores issues as large as weather and spirituality in "Who Speaks in the Pillar of Cloud?" and topics as small as mosquito in "Things That Go Buzz in the Night." In "Storms," a severe thunderstorm becomes a continuing metaphor for the author's troubles first marriage. Two essays, one from late middle age, ponder how the weather seems different at various stages of life but always provides unexpected opportunities for self-discovery, change, and renewal."--BOOK JACKET.

In her first collection, Alessandra Lynch deftly combines the surreal and the lyric into a striking and confident whole. At times witty, at times dreamlike, the poems revel in dense Symbolist-like imagery, juxtaposition, wordplay, and rhyme. By refusing a certain kind of transparency—direct statement and traditional allusion—Lynch excavates the shadowy region of the psyche. From a rich profusion of images emerge themes of unrealized desire, and the ways in which we may fail to be present in our own lives or to others. The poems seek to resolve these themes, suggesting how words, in memorializing the disorientations of life, reorient us; that it is in the tokens and monuments of our failed desires, broken promises—"Sails the wind left behind"—that we are able to find ourselves. from "Where I live": I live in a past passage of the rageful crow and its stalkfirst feet; it has staked my sleep and forced me to crawl through flamethrown dawn. I begin my day in slow burn, the stove unlit and the flower's mouth stuffed with bribecloth and weep. I begin stacking wood in a miniature village wearing the flint of wake and the stone of sleep. I live in a sleeve of love which won't have me leaning against moonhay which don't love me strumming a stack-tune in three-fingered rain. "Alessandra is shockingly good. The heroic of her narrative reminds me of Emily Dickinson, when it isn't reminding me of Hart Crane. I have loved her work for years and once they get the hang of it, the rest of the world will too. Bless this magnificent new book!"—Gerald Stern Alessandra Lynch was raised north of New York City. She holds a BA from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop. Currently, she teaches creative writing and English to high school students.

The work of women poets is often overlooked in anthologies, and collections of love poetry are no exception. This collection shows that on the subject of romantic and sexual love women can be just as eloquent as men - sometimes on the same themes, but often voicing different opinions and emotions - men rarely if ever wax lyrical on the subject of their fragility for example.
