Marge Piercy is an American original. A writer with a wicked sense of humor and a firm spirit of social justice, she condenses experience and observation into fearless poems. In her wise voice, she introduces each poem, then launches into its performance. This recording includes classic works such as "To Be of Us," as well new pieces that address the events and aftermath of 9/11. Piercy reads with the striking clarity that comes from the careful selection and placement of each word. A fine introduction to her canon or an important addition to any collection of contemporary American poetry, this recording of 26 poems is also salve and sustenance to listeners in need of strength and inspiration.
