Uttermost Paradise Place  (paperback)
Laura McKee

Winner of the 2009 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize, Laura McKee's debut collection Uttermost Paradise Place allows us to unhook ourselves from the confines of the present moments and drape language around the simultaneities of our inner life—that in our experience of any present moment we are living as much in the past of future. It is this layering that is most compelling and beautiful in these poems.

For Uttermost Paradise Place, Laura McKee

"... the poems in Uttermost Paradise Place achieve transparency. While many of them are perceived via a persona, it is ultimately the personae of perception itself that proscribes the pure pleasure of reading. 'Suit, I salute you. You have changed my questions.' How sweetly rare it is to overhear a poet's homage to her poem! Who authors who? As if we could answer!"—Claudia Keelan
