A New Review of Mary Biddinger’s SAINT MONICA

Praise keeps coming in for Mary Biddinger’s poetry chapbook Saint Monica: click here to read a fantastic review in The Rumpus, where Mary’s closing poem, “Saint Monica Wishes on the Wrong Star,” is described as “a poem of quiet gravity whose carefully arranged sestets superimpose chance upon hope, with harrowing—because chronological-time-defying—results, among others, wherein superstition is linked with prayer, and the emergence of selfhood, with a rejection (or exhaustion) of both.” These poems are so, so good.
