Item description for A New Hunger by Laure-Anne Bosselaar...

Beginning with a harrowing account of her childhood in a Belgian convent, where she was placed at the age of four, Laure-Anne Bosselaar shows us how early emotional and physical deprivation can be overcome by intelligence, humor, curiosity, and determination. Although many of her poems are overtly autobiographical, they are never merely personal.

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Stephen Dunn wrote of A New Hunger: "There's a time in the life of a poet as a maker of poems, if she or he is going to become more than just good, when the voice of one's second self fully emerges, distilling and orchestrating the poet's concerns, while simultaneously infusing them with an inner melody-a music that reaches and satisfies both ear and mind. This is to say that Laure-Anne Bosselaar, with her wonderful third book, A New Hunger, has become more than just good. It's an occasion to mark and to celebrate."

The acclaimed author of two previous collections (The Hour Between Dog and Wolf and Small Gods of Grief, which won the 2001 Isabella Stewart Gardner Prize), Laure-Anne Bosselaar grew up in Belgium, where she worked as a talk show host, commentator, and voiceover for Belgian radio and television. Fluent in four languages, she moved to the United States in 1987.

Reviews - What do customers think about A New Hunger?

At the knees of a compassionate master  Mar 30, 2008
I took a poetry workshop with Laure-Anne Bosselaar on 9/14/01--three days after 9/11. It was exactly what I needed to be doing at the time, and I have reflected and drawn on the contents of that workshop ever since. In her earlier books, Bosselaar demonstrates her deft mastery of the vivid image in the English language (she also writes in French and Flemish), and her fearlessness to apply such mastery to the hardest of subjects. To that, her new volume adds a profound appreciation for formal procedures in poetry and their ability to deepen and compress the writer's visionary argument. And always--ALWAYS--the music. "Day dithers, no wind or breeze, and light / so drab it could be dawn or dusk." ("March Chimes") "AWE / for the veins on a woman's hands today: their / swells and curves and how inside those // narrow blue rills brilliant twirls of DNA / whirled while she sold tickets." ("Awe") "Shut your eyes, face your walls, the scythe's // blade is tilting toward the earth--so / sleep for the one who knows horror, // or the one who dares speak in any god's name." ("Night") But reading excerpts is like trying to extrapolate the original vessles from brilliantly patterned pottery shards. I am a big fan Bossselaar's poems and the anthologies she creates with her husband, the poet, Kurt Brown--examples to anyone wishing to break the academic mold. Read this one aloud to a friend or to yourself. You will be grateful for the opportunity--and the confirmation that being human can be very good, some times because of, but more often in spite of everything.
