Beauty and Its Blade: a Review of Beautiful Soon Enough
There’s a new review of Margo Berdeshevsky’s Beautiful Soon Enough at Poetry International. The review deftly discusses the rich language of Beautiful Soon Enough within the context of Berdeshevsky’s poetry:
Readers were introduced to Margo Berdeshevsky’s rich use of language with her collection of poetry, But a Passage in Wilderness, in 2007. Her recent foray into fiction with the publication of Beautiful Soon Enough demonstrates that she has not abandoned poetry. In this winner of FC2’s American Book Review /Ronald Sukenick Innovative Fiction Prize, published by The University of Alabama Press, we continue to encounter lyricism, fresh imagery and classical allusions, a language that reflects a poet’s sensibility. Comprised of twenty-three stories, ranging in length from one to eight pages, these are artfully sculpted fictions conveyed with astonishing phrasing, yet transmitted with relative ease.
