Stewart-Nuñez draws upon a number of styles--persona, ekphrastic, lyrical, formal--to create a collection that explores the promises of love and loss. Among Untrussed's many delights is a series of Wonder Woman poems that reveal a heroine who is as human as she is superhuman. From pleasure to pain to hope of new love, this collection draws readers into the everyday magic of the world.
"The speaker of these poems takes the reader from romance to divorce, to renewal and reassessment and rebirth. She is always speculative and alert no matter how depressed he is. We love this speaker of the senses, her world packed with signs and memorials."--Hilda Raz, author of All Odd and Splendid
