"Very fast, very conceptual, funny and magical. Nobody like her. I loved her work then and now."--Eileen Myles Thirty-five years' worth of poems by Susie Timmons, a poet beloved by her peers, previously only available in small-run editions. Her poems are witty, smart, and quick, with a pleasantly surprising clarity and freshness. Susie Timmons was born in Chicago and has lived in New York most of her life. Timmons's first book of poetry, Locked from the Outside, was the inaugural winner of the Ted Berrigan Award, judged by Alice Notley, Robert Creeley, Anselm Hollo, and Ron Padgett.

Reviews

Reviews of The New Old Paint: Twenty years after her award-winning collection Locked from the Outside comes this much-anticipated second title. As it turns out her long hiatus was NEVER from poetry, just some time away from the poetry scene. WHAT A RELIEF! And because she never actually left poetry these new poems contain all her skills of precision and jolting epiphanies her earlier work mesmerized us with. How rare is it to read a book of poems and get wowed at every turn of the page? RARE! I say rare! --CAConrad, The Poetry Project Newsletter Very fast, very conceptual, funny and magical. Nobody like her. I loved her work then and now. --Eileen Myles
