A new Christmas-gift offer for the poets and poetry lovers in your life

Here’s a message from Anne:

“There’s still time to order your very own copy of my new collection of poems, Delicate Machinery Suspended, before 2011 ends! For those who do, I’m offering a signed bookplate to be sent to the recipient of your choice. Order two or more and I’ll include a foretaste, a preview of poems not published (two)! Just send me a FB message or email my personal assistant, Jeffrey, at joverstreet@gmail.com, and include the recipient’s name, any holiday (or other) sentiment you’d like to include, and your snail mail address or the address of the recipient. We’ll pop the plates in the post, posthaste.”

Here’s a review from the poet Derek Sheffield:

“Overstreet’s voice in these poems is convincingly sincere. Think Wordsworth. The poems are beautifully crafted, but what I especially love in them is how they aim for the best in us. They are engagingly compassionate and laced with hope. What a nice change of pace. Irony at 100 MPH can get old, even as it exhilarates. Overstreet’s book is quietly surprising. It invites us to embrace the beauty and loss that make up our lives. In this respect, her voice is right on key. Give it a listen.”
