Amy Berkowitz, "Gravitas" (Éditions du Noroît/Total Joy, 2023)


Frank, conversational, and darkly funny, Gravitas examines the tendency of MFA programs to teach women that their lives aren’t worth writing about. These poems bear witness not only to alienation but also to the bittersweet joy of being forced to invent alternative ways of living and writing.
