by Patti See
The poems in Love's Bluff are gutsy, burning with belief, unafraid of the heart. Patti See's voice is honest and unassuming, giving us innocence and wisdom in the same smooth breath.
Jennifer Fandel, Metaphors, Similes, And Other Word Pictures
Tugged by irresistible detail into Patti See's viewfinder, this Second Wave grandmother saw her own life and her daughter's in Patti See's ambivalent relationships with self and others. Love's Bluff offers riches for both personal reflection and feminist analysis.
Sarah Harder, President, National Peace Foundation and Past President, American Association of University Women
These poems, filled with specific details of motherhood, passion and elusive love, will pull you in. The language here sings.
Karen Loeb, Jump Rope Queen and Other Stories
With the wonder of a young Catholic schoolgirl and the wisdom of a well-versed mother and mate, Patti See skillfully writes about the lives we all really live. See's funny and heartbreaking words read as real stories about the sorts of people you once knew, you now know, or you yourself are.
Nick Meyer, Publisher/Editor of Volume One Magazine
Patti See's Love's Bluff is infinitely enjoyable. Subtle details remind the reader of the limitations of sexism and also the benefits of rising above. This collection leaves you thinking.
Amy Richards, co-author of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and the Future and Grassroots: A Field Guide for Feminist Activism
With an ear for dialogue and an eye for detail, Patti See brews her poetry with honesty. But it's her clever wit and I-wish-I'd-thought-of-that lines that make Love's Bluff a lot like Leinenkugel's Ñ an intoxicating Chippewa Falls export.
