Linda Ferguson’s newest chapbook, Not Me: Poems About Other Women, is now available for preorder from Finishing Line Press. The collection includes a chorus of women’s voices, including Emily Dickinson, a mermaid, a kidnapped heiress, and Carabosse (Sleeping Beauty’s nemesis).
“Through a prism of voices, both real and imaginary, we gain new understanding of women’s lives in a world that is not always made for them. At once subversive and strong, Ferguson’s imaginative language both heightens and deepens our awareness of ourselves and others.” -Diane Averill, author of Branches Doubled Over with Fruit
