Essayist, novelist and current Poet Laureate of the state of California, Carol Muske-Dukes gave a reading at Common Good Books from her latest book of poetry, Twin Cities. Come and get yourself a SIGNED copy!
Twin Cities is an emotionally rich book of poems about how things double by reflection, by reproduction, by severance. The poems embark from the twin cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, divided by a legendary river, and move on to the parallel histories of a life lived and a life imagined and the random intersection of the two.
A sophisticated and lyrical new collection from one of today's finest living poets.
