Number two in the Carolina Wren Press poetry Chapbook series is Succory by Durham resident Andrea Selch. Politics gets personal in Selch’s debut, a volume spanning decades of memory and continents of care. Selch’s lifestyle is subtly explored in ten lyric poems and two longer sequences, humor and pain are doled out in equal heaping doses.
Andrea Selch's full-length collection, Startling, was runner-up in the Turning Point competition in 2003, and was published by Turning Point in 2004, and reprinted by Cockeyed Press in 2009. Selch's poems have been published in numerous journals including Prairie Schooner, Calyx, The Asheville Poetry Review, Luna, and online at Swink, The Best American Poetry, and other sites.
