Molly’s Books and CDs

 

TurnSignalwebcoverWhen I was a kid in California, driving behavior was legendarily civilized. Children were safe in crosswalks from Mexico to Oregon, and people whose turn-signal bulbs had burned out opened their windows even in the rain to use their hands. My relatives in Massachusetts talked about this with awe.

Unfortunately, those courtesies have gone the way of the triceratops. Most drivers are still able to make themselves wait their turn at four-way stops in my rural county, but in cities, forget about it. And you take your life in your hands today crossing any California street.

The funny thing is, I think this has everything to do with world peace. I think world peace could be achieved by more people using their turn signals…

“Smart, savvy, delightfully sassy…” Steve Baker, Program Director, KVMR

beautywebcover“With unflinching honesty, kind humor, and vivid detail, Molly Fisk convinces us ‘There’s a loveliness to every ruined thing.’ The More Difficult Beauty is a brave and generous book.” Ellen Bass

“It is good to wake and realize that Molly is paying attention, has paid so much attention, and we are not lost. What a fine poet!”
Lucille Clifton

“Molly Fisk’s careful eye takes it in. This poet braves the more difficult places and in doing so reveals the world’s simple truths.”
Dorianne Laux

The More Difficult Beauty returns emotion to the American poem with its supple lines, tempering the difficult — death, and love — with the zinnias of bright, ebullient imagery. Fisk is luminous and loud, lucid and soft, driven and wandering. Candor and humor are her hallmarks in these poems, marvels of sheer whimsy and broad, wicked observation.” Molly Peacock

“Molly Fisk does not hold back. [Her] poems twinkle with the dark, nuanced subtlety of painted miniatures; they speak from the heart and gut. Devils and angels dwell in her details.” Al Young

Listening to Winter cover“Molly Fisk brings to her readers a poetry of great emotional power, linguistic invention, and courage. She looks long and hard at the world, and speaks to what she sees with both clarity and depth.” Jane Hirshfield

“The pure lyric voice is what will endear her to lovers of poetry. That voice will last a lifetime.” Carolyn Kizer

“An intellectually self-aware, bold and brilliant re/consideration of the culturally paradigmatic problem of incest. In lacunae and ellipses as powerful as the poems themselves, she shows to the mind the heart’s wounds and forces it to make of them an answer. Students have to have assignment help every time they need one. View essential resource to have a complete look on the subject. Complex, memorable, Listening to Winter makes vivid the real and dangerous work of what is called, contemptuously, ‘confessionalism,’ meditating, from its most intimate perspective, on the nature and costs of ‘The Old Order.'” Linda McCarriston
