Frances Williams won the 1999 Eric Gregory Award for her first book, Flotsam. The poems in her new collection are the product of a restless and inventive intelligence. Capable of ruminating with grace and flair on such diverse personalities as Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, and Elvis Presley, and such places as Las Vegas, Amsterdam, Australia, and Greece, Williams moves confidently between the metaphysical and the modern, combining a delight in abstract ideas with sensuous physicality. These are poems of great range, each one bejeweled with a color and cut characteristic of Williams' assured style.
