Plunge by Alice Jones
"With PLUNGE, Alice Jones brilliantly and with beautiful tact revives the art of menippean satire. In our disfigured state, she finds somehow surviving vivid emblems of our moral nature and brings them to the fore. En route, she proves willing to dismantle anything—including her own voice and her own distinctive music—that might distract us from the ruined truth of our Republic. These are poems of spiritual renovation—hard-won, hard-edged and, against all odds, tender to a fault."
