    Rouge Pulp
    Book Description:

    Rouge Pulpexplores notions of body and beauty, birth and death, in a contemporary America driven by its contradictions: material plenty and spiritual lack. Dorothy Barresi writes about strippers, hair salons, cancer, good credit ratings, cockfights, childbirth, maternal love, war. Her poems take the world's brutal vitality as their music, and they refuse to despair.
