Edie (Whispering): Poems from Grey Gardens | Sarah Nichols

Edie (Whispering): Poems from Grey Gardens, by Sarah Nichols (dancing girl press, 2015). Saddle-stapled, unpaginated.

Transcript excerpts set into brief poems. If you're a fan of Grey Gardens (any version), you'd likely expect these poems to add some layer, however thin (it is a spare chapbook), to the Big Edie-Little Edie spectacle. I can't really say that's true of this collection, though it's nice to read some of my favorite quotes from the documentary. If you've never seen the films or play, this might be a good invitation to do so.

[Rebound with size 10 plum variegated cord.]
