The University of Pittsburgh Press has just published Denise Duhamel’s poetry collection Blowout. “Blowout is both a celebration and mourning of romantic love—the blowout of a party, as well as the sudden rupture of a front tire.” Booklist says Blowout, “presents the miracle of how serious a life embedded in humdrum and commercialized reality can be…’Worst Case Scenario’—a solid block of successive personal disasters—negatively apotheosizes just such embeddedness. It takes your breath away.”
Sunday April 7th at 4 PM, FIU’s Denise Duhamel and Julie Marie Wade, along with U.M.’s Maureen Seaton, will be reading from their new books at Books and Books in Coral Gables, FL. Mark your calendars for this trio now.
