Book Description

A collection of Wanda Phipps’s best poems from her writing project in which she wrote every day right after she awoke, Wake-Up Calls is a fascinating reflection of the many different moods a person can have in the morning and a very personal glimpse into the author’s life (she was moving into a new home at the time). Phipps explores issues of identity and self with a freshness of voice and imagery fortuitously captured in the state between dreaming and fully waking up.

"Wanda Phipps's poems restored the world briefly into the unbearable longing and clarity of youth ... very tonic, very lovely." --Andrei Codrescu
