Susan When She Tries



Susan Dunn has been a poet and genius since the day she was born. She always saw the world a different way.

Among her earliest memories are being labelled rebellious, idiosyncratic, willful and out of control ... in school, at home and at play.

Enjoy Susan's mature expression of these qualities as she reaches the full height of her genius in these poems about
the loss of her son, the loves of her life, her view of the
world and the people in it and her private reminiscences
of what it is like to see more, feel more and understand
more than other people.

Susan When She Tries

Susan's poems are powerful, erotic, humorous and fiercely honest. She will grip your mind, fight your sloth, seed your consciousness and stir your soul. And in the end she will have you.
