“‘Muse, a Lady Cautioning,” dedicated to Billie Holiday, demonstrates Jeffers’s ability, in this second collection, to create beautifully crafted, nuanced, ambivalent figures out of people who have become reified by myth or history.” —Publishers Weekly

Red Clay Suite, Finalist of the 2006 Crab Orchard Open Competition

“Honorée Jeffers leads with her ear and follows with her rigorous intellect, then adds an emotional depth and fearlessness that make her poems uniquely powerful. This brilliant third book is a thinking woman’s blues that continues to challenge, delight, and terrify.”—Elizabeth Alexander
