Half Angel, Half Lunch by Sharon Mesmer


Half Angel, Half Lunch by Sharon Mesmer, faculty, Creative Writing at The New School.

Barnes & Noble:


“Sharon Mesmer’s poetry is a stream of indomitable spunk, it’s tough and lush, polysyllabic and right off the streets of Chicago and New York. She creates a fabulous tissue of language which floats out to inhabit other bodies, opens their mouths and makes them speak. This book is funny and reflects a new kind of poetry consciousness.” —Alice Notley.

“Her first full collection of poetry is a lively readable volume, always interesting, beautifully bold and vivaciously modern.” —Allen Ginsberg.
