Edition Details:

Language: English

  • "Ideally, a reader should finish this book, then find somebody to kiss." T.G. [The Author]
  • "This is the best book of love poems since Neruda's." Bill Knott, Emerson College
  • "I've always been fascinated by Tess Gallagher's poetry. In Portable Kisses, she convincingly provides condensed librettos of lovers' patterns of approach and retreat. The poems sometimes have a mythic quality, while at other times the poet all but steps aside to wink at us and to acknowledge the power of mind over matter as it intrudes itself into even the most romantic of myths. It's a book filled with beauty, energy, and surprise." Ann Beattie
