Product Description:
After years working at the The New Yorker and then becoming a senior editor at Alfred A. Knopf, Deborah Garrison burst on the scene in 1998 with her first book of poems "Working Girl". Trendy and on point she dazzled. Her savvy, quirky and sparkling words light up her themes. She delves into the issues of friendship, being a young female professional with a strong motivation to move forward in her life, who deals with feelings of love, grief and passion. The book of poems, "Second Child", deals with the themes motherhood in all it’s joys, frustrations, and trials. With rhymes that surprise and startle combined with casual metaphors, one can see why jer work has been likened to Emily Dickenson. In a peculiar way, Garrison typifies the new American ideal of woman: mother, wife, poet, writer, editor. Filmed with Bill Moyers and Deborah Garrison her exuberant tales celebrate the values and experience of women in the work force. She draws you in with her calm voice and wraps words around your senses and transforms how you view the mundane world. At the time that these poems were launched her work was connected by the popular press with TV shows like Ally McBeal and Sex in the City. A must-see for writers to understand balancing and moving forward in their lives and their writing. Readings deftly delivered by Garrison are of her well-known poems: "A Working Girl Can't Win," "A Friendship Enters Phase Two," "The Boss," "Please Fire Me," "A Kiss,""3 A.M. Comedy," "The Firemen," "She Thinks of Him on Her Birthday," "Atlantic Wind," "She Was Waiting to Be Told," and "3 A.M. Comedy," (27 minute) View a Preview Clip
