96 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. POETRY. These poems tell the story of a colorful and often painful childhood spent traveling around the world in this first book by a newly minted poet and former artisan now living in New Hampshire. "...Contradiction is built into the title of this book. So too is the question of being. Korfhage's work admits no easy answers. Her poetry is quirky, feminine, as many-eyed as the fly on the wall, as fast-paced and dramatic as any novel. Her language is deliberately colloquial, like the marvelous poets Marie Howe and Sharon Olds. It is elegant and achingly honest...always forging her own way."&emdash; Liz Rosenberg The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: Foreword • More Than I Knew • First Confession • White • Albany and Valaite, New York • First Death • The Fruit Stand • Airplane • Blue WIllow • Dear Christine • Spain • Spain • International School of the Sacred Heart • A Year in San Juan • The Elizabeth Taylor Look-Alike Contest • Stop it! • My Father's Voice • Hong Kong • On the Outskirts of Manila • Lavender • First Wedding • Two Continents • Expecting • Even Now • Picture Perfect • They Knew • The One Lie • The Artist • Crimes and Misdemeanors • Diagnosis • Medication • Two Certainties • JOE I • J.M.
