Into Her Own

By posted at 12:00 pm on April 27, 2015 4

Hollywood Notebook by Wendy Ortiz is both a book of poetry and a memoir. Composed of several prose poems, the book depicts her evolution into a poet in her early thirties, following up where her previous memoir Excavation left off. At The Rumpus, Lesley Heiser analyses the book, with references to Phil Klay’s Redeployment and Hermione Lee’s biography of Virginia Woolf.

    The link to my review of Wendy Ortiz’s Hollywood Notebook that you comment on is not there in your Into Her Own section. Where the link to the article on The Rumpus is indicated, you have a link to Phil Klay’s book of short stories instead.

    Sorry about that, Lesley. It’s fixed.
