Less of Her is informed by a knowledge of irredeemable loss. While its poems record diminishment and imminent disappearances, they strike notes of survival and triumph, mining despair and longing for "small winnings." In this collection of female voices, grief and the sadnesses of desire are catalysts, but love consoles, redeems, "make[s] everything sing." These humane and ageless poems demand our attention.

PAULA MCLAIN received an MFA in poetry from the University of Michigan, and has been a resident of Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony. She is the author of two collections of poetry, two novels, and a memoir, and lives in Cleveland with her family.Review:
“In Paula McLain's book Less of Her, the soul steps forward and sings a torch song. The song is both fevered and measured, bearing the double burden of an almost unforgivable past and the possibility of mercy in the future. And the voice is naked, urgent, unflinching, a girl's voice in the mouth of a woman or a woman's voice in the mouth of a girl. This is a first book to listen to again and again.” (Bruce Smith)
