    Poet Jessica Fox-Wilson knows a basic & important truth: we are made of stories. These are the stories we inherit culturally, the stories of family, the stories we tell about ourselves, the stories told by our peers. But this poet knows something even more important—we have the ability to re-tell & re-shape those stories, to configure them in line with our own experience & to find a truth in them that isn’t the “received” truth of their packaging. This is the task Fox-Wilson tackles in her debut collection, Blameless Mouth; she sets herself the task of exploring stories about hunger, consumption, satiety & want both culturally & in her own experience. These are fundamental issues, speaking both to our overall human condition & more specifically to our situation as members of a consumer society. But the poet doesn’t stop there. She also specifically examines how these issues affect her & women in general—at its core, Blameless Mouth is deeply feminist. This... More > is writing by a poet who has a clear conception of voice, image & rhetoric, who can convey both strong emotion & precise thought. I give Blameless Mouth an enthusiastic recommendation.< Less

    An amazing read. This is a poetry book that takes a real look at women's lives -- the pain, the desires, the hunger, the memories, and dreams. The imagery is delicious, and the poems resonate with truth. Sometimes humorous, sometimes painful, both looking at sadness and celebrating joy, this book speaks about women, and to women, in an intimate and unforgettable way.
