Item Description...
Poet and visual artist Faye Kicknosway presents both new works and twenty-five years of celebrated verse and illustration in her latest volume, Mixed Plate: New and Selected Poems. The poems mine common speech, folklore, film, the grotesque and the ordinary with unapologetic candor and ferocious intimacy. They are a testament to the power of contemporary monologue, filled with surprising inversions and unique takes on the risk of opening the front door. Cutting musically to the quick of a situation, each is filled with surprise, horror and, as they add up, moral consequence.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wunnerful, wunnerful.  Jun 7, 2005
Faye Kicknosway, Mixed Plate (Wesleyan, 2003)

I've been having a hard time writing this review, which is kind of odd with a book I liked so much. Faye Kicknosway's poems are what would happen if the pathetic, annoying flower children of the sixties and seventies had actually mastered the art of poetry (instead of becoming a legion of Helen Steiner Rice wannabes headed by the Evil Twins known as Rod McKuen and Susan Polis Schutz) and then grown up to get really, really bitter and cynical, while still realizing that despite the fact that people are, essentially, well beyond the point of being saved, there is still enough beauty in the world that not everything you write has to sound like it's coming out of the mouth of a goth band's singer.

Kicknosway's poems are never less than sensual, often earthy, and it's a mark of her considerable mastery of the form that she can take such ingredients and make them sexy or not, as she pleases. More so that the sexy pieces can be juxtaposed with pieces that reflect brutality without there being any sort of blending effect; the same linguistic mechanisms are used, but the process used to get to the effect is completely different.

Unfortunately, I'm still having a hard time writing this review. Well, I tried. Would it help if I just said, "this is an excellent piece of work. Read it."?
Kicknosway's Best Collection Ever  Feb 17, 2004
"Mixed Plate" is Kicknosway at her best: the strongest of the old mixed with wonderful new poems and prose poems. I found this volume to be witty, entertaining, superbly crafted and jumping off the page with surprises. This is an eminently readable work. The pen-and-ink drawings (cover and interior), also by Kicknosway, are as uniquely imaginative as the words of the text. Hers is a truly original voice. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and re-reading these poems.
