And so, I give unto you the thrilling poet Claudia Cortese’s poetry collection, Wasp Queen, forthcoming in December from Black Lawrence Press. Cortese’s brave and unblinking work appears in such publications as Blackbird, Crazyhorse, and The Offing. An excerpt from Wasp Queen can be found on the latter journal’s site. Read more about her on her author page at Claudia-Cortese.com. Her writing does not shrink from the hard truths of modern life.
Go forth, humanoids, and read! If you have a suggestion for my next Book Recommendation of the Month, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @City_Sasquatch.
