Straits & Narrows
Sidney Wade

Sidney Wade continues to showcase her talents as a poet of potent play in this buoyant sixth collection. Oftentimes reminiscent of the work of Marianne Moore, these striking new poems—rustic, reflective, and typically set lakeside—are limber and unbelievably lean, quick as bubbling brooks, and packed with whimsy and wisdom in equal measure. 

“Sidney Wade’s imagination is as powerful as any American poet's since Wallace Stevens.”
—Jordan Davis, Slate

“Wade who takes a reflection on nature and applies it to the entire world . . . with insight and wisdom. . . . a choice pick for poetry enthusiasts, very much recommended.”
The Midwest Book review
