With their zestful language and full-tilt approach to life, these poems, which are concerned above all with the tribulations and occasional triumphs of the twenty-something New York professional woman, made Deborah Garrison, whose first book this was, the most talked-about new American poet of recent years. A Working Girl Can't Win is witty, wise, generous and wholly trustworthy in what it has to say - to all readers - about matters both dark and light.
