Impassioned sonnet virtuoso Moira Egan makes a magnificent obsession of the passing of the menses in Hot Flash Sonnets. Lusty candor is here galore—if the Wyf of Bath were reincarnated as a sonneteer, she would be Moira Egan—but it’s the skill of this poet that dazzles, for she turns her stunning sequence into a vast landscape, contouring matters of beauty and aging in divinely controlled lines.

I really loved this collection of theme sonnets. The format and design of the book was beautiful. The sonnets are great. This is a great collection to read cover to cover, and one to come back to read from.
I haven't read a lot of poetry this year, so I really enjoyed reading it. Poetry for aging chicks. Yeah!!
