Some Girls is full of strange and lovely images, quirky humor, and an uncanny insight into the classic myths and fairy tales that reveal these stories to be as true and revelatory as ever. The past and the present, the personal and the universal, are braided with surprising and lush language. The great poet Stanley Kunitz said we have to avoid t only cliches of language, but cliches of thought and these poems succeed in that. Janet McNally is a fresh and original voice. --Ellen Bass Janet McNally teaches creative writing at Canisius College and has an MFA in fiction from the University of Notre Dame.
