Less of Her is informed by a knowledge of irredeemable loss. While its poems record diminishment and imminent disappearances, they strike notes of survival and triumph, mining despair and longing for small winnings. In this collection of female voices, grief and the sadnesses of desire are catalysts, but love consoles, redeems, make[s] everything sing. These humane and ageless poems demand our attention.

Review quote

"Whether she is lost in space among the forbidden planets or staking her claim at ground zero, Paula McLain writes with an alert sense of place and self. Less of Her is a cosmology of touch and warning--of erotic entanglements and the complex grace and waste wrought from nurturing those relationships. Few poets in their first books are so able to balance irony with glad acceptance. I much admire the crispness of her technique and the adroit result of her aggregate vision."-- "Web Biography"
