Hurricane Party

by Alison Pelegrin

Publication Year: 2011

Hurricane Party is an original and rewarding work, a masterful follow-up to Big Muddy River of Stars, and a livewire, compelling contribution to American poetry. No other poet sounds like Pelegrin, and that's the sure sign of a writer at the top of her game. —Elton Glaser
