The poems in Furs Not Mine display Andrea Cohen's masterful craft and lyricism and her keen wit. In Cohen's elegiac shoals, we see how "Great griefs are antidotes / for lesser sorrows," and in her strange, surprising narratives, we glimpse a man darting into traffic for a hubcap, "meaning to build his dream / vehicle from scrap." These poems, too, have the feel of dreamy constructions, in which bliss "from a distance, can look like pain." That's the magic of this collection: it holds loss and promise in the same image - sometimes even the same word.

"[Cohen's] wily ways with the mother tongue are equal to every curve the world throws, showing over and over how the soul of wordcraft can run rings around 'the central O / of loss and going on.'"--David Barber
