Paris, 7 A.M. Reviews

    Gosh, this book. This is a loving tribute to Elizabeth Bishop in the form of a novel that reads a bit like an extended Bishop poem. I have long loved Bishop's work, but knew pretty much nothing about her life. Paris, 7 A.M. is a bit experimental, in that it doesn't worry about explaining how Elizabe...

    Beginning in 1930 at Vassar and continuing through 1979, this work of fiction conceptualizes the life of Elizabeth Bishop.

For followers of poet Elizabeth Bishop this presents more of a thought provoking issue for Bishop maintained daily journals throughout her life, except for much of 1937 ...

    This book is comprised of overwritten and overthought sentences. “The whole landscape of colleges scaffolds and pillories, stocks and bonds, glass houses, and stone lying around everywhere. These notions, like wolves, drift in from the darkened edges of her mind.” Every little mundane deta...

    This is another of those books I’m at a loss to rate. Because I often enjoy poetic writing in literary works of fiction, I was thrilled to see this book was written by a poet and about a poet. I would be remiss, however, if I didn’t explain the simultaneously troubled relationship I have w...
