“Her lusher effusions gain astringency from an achingly palpable heartbreak, and from an increased awareness of technology, commodity, politics: swoon meets zoom.” ―Boston Review
“Jane Miller is by far one of our best poets writing today . . . Miller is like the NASA space station of poetry: out of this world, yet of it, and still looking down. From her peculiar and important vantage she blows us kisses in the form of images that hit their mark.” ―Lambda Book Report
Jane Miller’s eleventh book, Who Is Trixie the Trasher? and Other Questions, is a hyper-political and brassy collection of poems that questions authority, sexism, ageism, and romance in the face of mortality. Differing from her earlier poems in their range and urgency, this collection retains Miller’s signature lyric voice, personal yet thrilling in its associative leaps. Her intimate language illuminates and soothes our current trauma―especially as experienced by women―where nightmarish reality must answer to human dignity.
. . . Would you ever catch her at home, washing
her panties before dawn, her dishes,
leveling with you in this sexist world
of male gaze and female fuckability, everyone looking
for a little empathy in the end? . . .
Jane Miller is the author of eleven collections of poetry, including A Palace of Pearls, winner of the 2006 Audre Lorde Award. She has received numerous awards and fellowships, including a Guggenheim fellowship and the Western States Book Award. She currently resides in Tucson, Arizona.
