I'm actually trying to find a collection of poems....it probably came out between 1995 and 2004. The author was a woman in her twenties, and the collection was rather disturbing, as I recall, because it dealt with childhood abuse and (I think) incest, which weren't quite as publically acknowledged at the time as they have been over the past several years. I seem to recall that the poems also dealt with the problems of adult romantic relationships for someone of her history, though she portrayed herself as very glamorous and attractive. (A blonde, I believe.) Anyway, the book made quite an impression on me, and though I haven't thought of it in years, I'm surprised I've forgotten so much about it! If anyone has any ideas, please respond.

Thanks!

    Hi there-if anyone is interested, I finally figured out what poetry collection this is. It's *Human Nature* by Alice Anderson. Haven't re-read yet, so no further details at present.
