Summary

In Catherine Pierce's most peculiar second collection, we enter a world of longing and destruction, of death and rebirth, and of wonderfully odd girls--girls who read too much, who drink too much or not enough, who craft necklaces from earwigs and wring nostalgia from Spiro Agnew. These are poems of questions and restlessness, but also of answers of a sort. As Beth Ann Fennelly writes, "[t]he big themes here--self identity, desire, escape--are illuminated with clarity, scored musically, and enlivened with wit. The Girls of Peculiar is a fabulous book."
