Sue Scalf, Pre­mium Press Amer­ica Soft­cover $20.95 (396pp), 978-1-933725-42-0


The gen­tle nudge to pause, lis­ten, look for deeper mean­ing or hu­mor— es­pe­cially at the worst of times—is ever present in Sue Scalf’s po­etry. But her blood runs plenty hot, and that op­po­si­tion be­tween the thought­ful and the pas­sion­ate helps to ex­plain why she’s been a revered bard for more than fifty years. The au­thor of eight col­lec­tions, over her life­time Scalf lived in a cou­ple dozen home­steads around the US, in­clud­ing a long stint in Michi­gan’s Up­per Penin­sula. She now lives in Alabama.
