Misery PrefiguredeBook - 2001
In her second collection of poems, J. Allyn Rosser explores the human condition in all its gloriously valiant pathos.

Whether contemplating a failed marriage, a visit from God, or a pearl dropped into a bottle of Prell shampoo, Rosser's wry yet impassioned eye looks hard for a habitable and abiding truth.
