Katha Pollitt: "The de facto poet laureate of Brooklyn"

Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn published an enthusiastic review of Katha's reading at Brooklyn's Bookcourt:

"A reading by Katha Pollitt is an enjoyable exercise in lateral thinking. Her poems are at once fiercely intellectual but also personal and highly accessible. They convey a a wide swath of knowledge about literature, politics and religion but are also full of sensory images that pop in the mind. As the owner of Bookcourt said in his introduction, "Pollitt's poems are subversive modern parables that are profound and accessible; they put her in the first rank of modern American poets."
