Reviews - What do customers think about Auto Mechanic's Daughter (Black Goat)?

Reflecting the author's own trials and challenges  Mar 5, 2008
Auto Mechanic's Daughter is an anthology of free-verse poetry by published poet Karen Harryman, whose work has appeared in "Alaska Quarterly Review", "Los Angeles Review", "Poetry New Zealand", and "Cortland Review", among other places. Reflecting the author's own trials and challenges, the poems speak of growing up in Kentucky, moving to California, and the culture shock that accompanies setting out to make a bold change in one's life. An open, heartfelt, and unforgettable glimpse into the hardships and rewards of surviving transition. "At Least": In May and June / there are the jacarandas' / purple blossoms fallen / on green lawns of every block // reminding me of home / how bluegrass isn't blue / until it gives up that flower / until it goes to seed.
A non-poetry guy just loved this book of poetry...  Sep 14, 2007
Well, a non-poetry guy just loved this book of poetry. I'm genuinely surprised at how many emotions I felt as I read Karen Harryman's poems... and really amazed at how powerful some of them felt, considering how few words she sometimes chose to use. Some of my favorites were "Washing Dishes"... "Anniversary"... "The Truth"... "White Trash Blessing"... and of course, the "Auto Mechanic's Daughter". Many of them have the feeling that they were written by someone who has walked through several different lifetimes, all in the same pair of very worn shoes... especially "White Trash Blessing". I should say here that I'm the kind of guy who thought poetry had to rhyme and usually end in some sort of filthy but funny joke, so I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoyed reading this book... and how much the poems truly touched me... and how I now wished I had parceled out the poems over the course of a month, reading one a night, instead of having read them all in one sitting. I will be sure to not make that mistake on Karen Harryman's next book.
