Review quote

"Rhythm & Booze is packed with so many brilliant moments of poetry you want to call up friends and cry "Listen to this!" Part Ray Charles and Phillip Larkin, part Dorothy Parker and Barry Hannah, some Mae West and some Miles Davis, her poems are so much fun they stick like the blues behind them. Nobody writes villanelles so effortlessly, nobody bares her teeth so brightly, nobody sashays so come-hitheringly, nobody is so formidably cool. Miss Kane is my discovery of the year and more and I shall be telling about her ages and ages after sunset. You want the delights that only real poetry can give? Pick up RHYTHM AND BOOZE. And when you're done, give it to a friend who, I guarantee, will thank you for this trip through New Orleans, bars, bawdy days and nights, smoky songs, and the heart that can't help crying and dancing." --Dave Smith, author of Floating on Solitude: Three Volumes of Poetryshow more
