Madeline DeFrees recommends
The Tiger Iris, poems by Joan Swift: “Of all the writers I know, Joan Swift is surely one of the best at transforming reverses into poems of astonishing beauty and strength. Her particular blend of memory, imagination, feeling, and intellect creates an alchemy that changes the base metal of experience into gold.” (BOA)
