Poetry
  • Unmentionables: Poems (October 26, 2009 release)
    With elegant word play and her usual subversive wit, Beth Ann Fennelly questions our everyday human foibles.

  • Great with Child: Letters to a Young Mother (2007)
    A toddler's mother, both an intimate guide and an affectionate coach, writes to a pregnant friend about the transforming experience of motherhood. "These are letters I would have welcomed when I was pregnant," says Beth Ann Fennelly, as she seeks to go beyond the nuts and bolts or sentimentality of other parenting literature. The letters range in tone from serious to sisterly, from light-hearted to downright funny. Some answer specific questions such as decisions about pain medication; others muse about the identity shift a woman encounters when she enters Mommyland or address our responsibility to the natural world. Still others explore the magic and mysteries of childbirth, the wonders of language, and the exhilaration (also the ambivalence) about a baby's first steps to independence.

    Here are modern letters written in an old-fashioned way, not as hasty e-mails but more slowly and filtered through the sensibility of a spirited, fearless poet. Though written for a specific person, their themes are universal, inviting all mothers to join the grand circle of giving and receiving advice about children.

  • Tender Hooks ( 2005)
    Beth Ann Fennelly is fearless in delineating the joys, absorptions, and—yes—jealousies of new motherhood. Having studied motherhood "as if for an exam," reality proved "wilder and deeper and funnier" than anything she'd anticipated. Tender Hooks is Fennelly's spirited exploration of parenting, with all its contradictions and complexities.

  • Open House (2002, 2009) -- Winner GLCA New Writers Award; Winner of The Kenyon Review Prize

  • A Different Kind of Hunger (1997) -- Winner 1997 Texas Review Chapbook Breakthrough Award
