In a Woman's Likeness

by Jacqueline Brown

In a Woman's Likeness

Poetry Book Society Recommendation

Jacqueline Brown's third collection is a chronological journey from childhood through motherhood to middle age, tracing the unfolding of womanhood with a sensitivity and truthfulness encountered in her previous works.

[Her] poems move confidently: intelligent, wry, quirky, delicate as a surgeon... she brings out the imitation of womanhood women feel impelled to take on.

Ruth Padel, PBS

A rich and rewarding book.
