Item description for Clumsy (New Issues Poetry & Prose) by Claire Bateman...

"Claire Bateman's speakers are experts in failure, and they often know how silly they look from a cautious pragmatic perspective. They know they look like misfits, bumbling around in a world of rationally explicable restraints---clumsy, whacked, but undaunted and weirdly cheerful. Like other transcendentalist poets, Bateman is most powerful and moving where she gives pain and folly their due, sustaining her readiness for marvelous breakthrough amid folly and pain. Indeed, her central intuition is that the interaction between two realities, rather than either reality in itself, is what makes life, as well as poetry, terrific."

---Mark Halliday, from the foreword

Reviews - What do customers think about Clumsy (New Issues Poetry & Prose)?

Surreal and succinct  Oct 22, 2007
This is a fun book. If you loved "The Waste Land", you'll enjoy "Clumsy."
If you hate T.S.Eliot and find him ponderous and long winded, READ THIS BOOK NOW, since Claire Bateman is neither!
Amazing...  Nov 23, 2004
These poems are so great-- complicated yet seamless and conversational--many of them are hilarious. I think Claire Bateman sees something of humanity that most of us miss. One of my favorite books of poetry in the last few years.
