Portrait Sitters

Poems by Jane Rice

“The light, quick turns of language here really sparkle! And the vivid details Rice chooses seem to come out of nowhere to land perfectly, precisely, every time. Like any excellent portraitist, she exposes her subjects’ emotional landscapes, but she also goes beyond the frame of the individual to evoke an entire time and place. Montparnasse between the wars was so full of color, and Rice re-enacts it here.”
-- Cole Swensen, author of Goest
