Poetry. Second Edition. Poetry. Winner of the Anhinga Prize for Poetry. "The reader takes an unpredictable, exhilarating trip with the subject matter of Erika Meitner's poems—from memories of a hormone-charged adolescence in the big city, to adult affairs of love and lust and loss; from learning to teach in a classroom filled with pubescent fireplug mirrors of oneself, to confronting one's Jewish history at the hands of an equally fiery grandmother. But riding herd on all this range is Meitner's distinctly snappy voice, a blend of assertiveness and vulnerability"—Stephen Corey. "These are poems like the tattoos she hymns and ponders—they mark our being with their delicate, indelible patterns"—Greg Orr.

If I had to sum up Erika Meitner's book inventory at the all-night drugstore in one sentence, I would have to say that these poems are street smart. Then, I would probably have to clarify myself a bit and revise this statement to say that the narrators found in Meitner's poetry are street smart.

Erika Meitner is simply a fantastic poet. Her work is real, sincere, beautiful and original. It deserves every single bit of praise it gets--she's an enormous star with so much wit and talent, she truly blows all those obtuse, frighteningly self-referential young turks right out of the water. Hers is a voice worth listening to: how can one woman have all the answers, and in one slim tome? Look no further. It's all in the drugstore, and it's open all night.

I usually find contemporary poetry esoteric. But this fantastic collection speaks of real experiences and feelings, in a voice tuned to the meter of modern life. Ms. Meitner has really touched me with her personal insights on moments that affect us all.
