Read full description of the books:Suzanne Frischkorn is a fierce and fearless poet. In "Girl on a Bridge," she first upends our dainty notions of girlhood and then leads us into the wilderness of violence, madness, fear, and love -- and does so with beauty and tenderness.
--Julianna Baggott, author of "Lizzie Borden in Love," and "Compulsions of Silkworms and Bees"
Good citizens beware: Suzanne Frischkorn has let "Girl on a Bridge," loose on the world and she’s spreading the word about the furies of femininity and the madness of motherhood with its “stone weight of home.” These poems burn holes on the fairy tale pages of domestic fantasy and uncover the treacherous (though more exciting) narratives of those women who dare stray from the path or, at the very least, who celebrate their desires: “What’s more flattering than being wanted by a mouth that waters?” This book of finely-crafted verse holds up its poetry like a lovely razor blade.
