Dog Star Delicatessen: New and Selected Poems, 1979-2006 (Book Title)


Program Description:

Reviewers of Mekeel McBride's "Dog Star Delicatessen have said "It is imagination that sets her apart from the ordinary. These are no ordinary poems!" and "The point is how varied this poet can be, a virtue that's worth remarking on in a climate where poets sometimes get praised for doing one particular thing over and over. That may make for intensity, but it soon makes or boredom as well, and I rejoiced at McBride's vigorous variety." (Carnegie-Mellon University Press, 2006)
