“In Anne Graue’s Full and Plum-Colored Velvet memories rise like heat off of a dusty road.

This book contains a childhood full of little ghosts, and the tensions and smoke that snake underneath a family. In these poems place is not just a spot on the map, but its weather, its foods, a rich world full of fauna and tornado sirens. Graue has given us

a collection full of remembrances that make the past vivid, and looks forward to a future with daughters carrying stories into a clear and calm summer.” – Tracy Brimhall
