A third collection by the author of Darling returns readers to the terrain of earlier works and features the writer's erotic and surreal lyrics, dreamlike meditations, and sequence of elegies, in a volume that evinces an unfolding story told through interlinked, recurring images.

Blackwell North Amer
"Red Shoes opens with an arrangement of sexy, almost surreal lyrics and continues in a sequence of extended dream-meditations - near poem, near lyric essay - that explores the terrain between sleep and waking, life and death. The final section of elegies moves between memory and grief, body and imagination, often in the rapid flash of a moment, sometimes in notation or narrative, or with photographic stillness. The poems are linked by images, and the sense of a story unfolding - a red bowl in one poem reappears in another with more of its attributes: the color red is carried through the collection.
