POETRY

From Cradle to Grace
From Cradle to Grace (release date - August 10, 2018) Throughout their lives, like it or not, women are care givers, and these poems give voice to the range of emotions encountered along the way. Bobbie Ann Mason, author of In Country and The Girl in the Blue Beret, describes From Cradle to Grace as “startling, profound, and enlightening. They give me the shivers, they’re so plain and direct—not dressed up.

” Poet Laureate of Kentucky, Frederick Smock, says that the poems bring light “to the human history of desire, grief, and trouble. Constance Alexander has a dramatist’s way into the vagaries of human existence. The title poem is no less than a hymn to life and its particulars – evocative and transcendent.”

Letters From Down Under
“These poems are firmly rooted in the ordinary world of Fuller Brush men and scrambled eggs, but they also manage to surprise and delight with dragons, gypsies, and goddesses,” according to award-winning poet Rachel Contreni Flynn. Jan Beatty, who directs the creative writing program at Carlow University, says the Letters from Down Under “instruct us in the language of the blade. With cutting metaphors, she takes us to the small windows of the body’s prison…where fear and seduction cross paths.”

Kilroy Was Here
“The poems signify a first-hand witness to the emotions and artifacts of an era, from ration stamps to Movie-Tone news and Gold Star Mothers,” is how Al Smith, veteran journalist, describes "Kilroy". Kentucky State Historian James Klotter finds the poems “sad and sorrowful, warm and witty,” using “the power of poetry to personalize war.”

64 Blue Letters
A “living” yearbook from 1964, the poems “deftly capture the essence of what it is to be a high school senior” in any decade, says prize-winning playwright Nancy Gall-Clayton. “The insecurities, longings, bravado, sorrows, joys, and camaraderie are all revealed.”
