    Between the Crackups By Rebecca Lehmann Between the Crackups is a frolicking romp through the abandoned factories, overcrowded highways, and forgotten rural landscapes of America This provocatively voiced book explores themes of sexuality, gender, class, pop culture, and aesthetics Some of these poems are sonnets, some are multi voiced elegies, others are meditations on loss From the balmy swamps of Florida Between the Crackups is a frolicking romp through the abandoned factories, overcrowded highways, and forgotten rural landscapes of America This provocatively voiced book explores themes of sexuality, gender, class, pop culture, and aesthetics Some of these poems are sonnets, some are multi voiced elegies, others are meditations on loss From the balmy swamps of Florida, to the snowed in forests of northern Wisconsin, and back again, Rebecca Lehmann captures a feeling of cultural unease and personal panic in tight, smartly worded poems that banter casually with the tropes, traditions, and authors of the Western poetic canon In the book, the Old English poem The Dream of the Rood is re imagined as a two part, modern day fever dream, the classic pastoral landscape morphs into an apple orchard occupied by off putting children, and the entire season of autumn goes missing Part serious meditation and part carnival fun house, these poems will make the reader chortle, chuckle, snort, and maybe even blush.

    • My lovely daughter wrote this collection of poems, so of course I am biased and think it s fantastic This is not a delicate piece of work, and shows the dark and sometimes humorous side of the author I know the years of blood, sweat and tears that went into this book and I am so proud of my girl for this wonderful accomplishment


    • I m starting to read a book of poetry a day for the month of May, something I did a while back, and now keeping company with two of my friends So why not read a book an old friend of mine wrote I knew Becky when she was a senior in high school my husband and his siblings attended the same school as her We were just babies then, looking back Becky s book is lovely, and I especially loved The Factory, An Elegy In Six Parts Her sequenced poems are the strongest for me, where she can repeat and revi [...]
