ABOUT THIS BOOK
Rouge Pulp explores notions of body and beauty, birth and death, in a contemporary America driven by its contradictions: material plenty and spiritual lack. Dorothy Barresi writes about strippers, hair salons, cancer, good credit ratings, cockfights, childbirth, maternal love, war. Her poems take the world’s brutal vitality as their music, and they refuse to despair.
AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY
Dorothy Barresi is professor of English at California State University, Northridge. She is the author of three  poetry collections: All of the Above, winner of the Barnard College New Women Poets Prize; The Post-Rapture Diner, winner of the American Book Award; and Rouge Pulp.
