Book:World's Tallest Disaster

World's Tallest Disaster: Poems

Cate Marvin

Marvin’s poems are jaunty and fierce, witty and intense; she reads like a formalist who has thoroughly learned the pleasures and gains of abandon. It is her excursions into wild image and passionate song that win the reader’s heart. The heart is central in World’s Tallest Disaster, which is essentially a book of love poems-love lost and found, love requited, love abandoned and betrayed.
