n New Coin Poetry - Ghost Writer and Other Poems, Jane Fox : book review

Volume 45, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0028-4459



The poems in are portraits and stories from a speaker with a generous heart - who takes joy in seeing someone from afar with a 'hat of daffodil yellow' (and now I smile at the yellow-hatted figure strolling on the cover's beach), makes a little story from a fisherman's blown kiss to lighten a corporate lunch, watches the small gestures of the people around her and engages in the big embraces of being human. The poems are filled with insight, not the biting kind, but the tender kind that can move one from a light moment to close to tears at a touch.
