The More Difficult Beauty

the more difficult beauty cover

“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

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
