Subjective Geography: A Poet’s Thoughts on Life and Craft brings together prose pieces Madeline DeFrees wrote over the course of her sixty-year career, essays and reviews in which she blends criticism, craft and memoir to chronicle her life in poetry.
Subjective Geography is now out from Lynx House Press, the latest addition to the Northwest Masters series published in conjunction with Lost Horse Press.
The Seattle Review of Books featured Blue Dusk in their Lunch Date column March 7, 2016. Paul Constant wrote, “She’s thoughtful and earnest and intelligent and a little bit prickly, just like the best of our poets.” Read the entire review here.
