In BLACK ICE: POEMS you will discover Barbara Purcells charged landscape of edgy recollections and journeys. . . she writes straightforwardly of bulimia, nude modeling, love betrayed, and early warning signs of things amiss. There are no fake notes here-Colette Inez. Barbara Purcell puts Directness back into poetry, which is not to say she lacks metaphors, but rather theyre made even more powerful by her allegiance to the truth. Shes able to achieve something unique among writers--self-expression that never sounds confessional--Hal Sirowitz.
