The Watermark by Alice Anderson


Product Details

Publisher’s Weekly said in its starred review of Human Nature, “Anderson's life force is implicit in the language throughout these poems, objective, exact, charged with an emotional force given only to those who have been to hell and returned to tell the tale.” Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild, said “Anderson's honesty will take your breath away. She has the courage to tell her heart's deepest, darkest truths while never compromising on the poet's craft. Anderson's poems are rigorous and right.”

In The Watermark, readers can expect more exceptional craft, disturbing narratives, and new surprises from this wholly original, fearless voice as she charts scars ranging from the post-hurricane Katrina days to losses close to the family and home.
