What They Are Saying About After the Steaming Stops

Alice Osborn’s After the Steaming Stops is a provocative family invocation—at once precisely journalistic and richly imagined. Nothing goes unnoticed. Osborn’s eye, and what it falls upon, is her enduring story, leavened with unflinching candor. These poems are wonderfully narrative, and cannily crafted, luring the reader in with their easy inviting gait. These poems never stop steaming.  —Joseph Bathanti, poet and novelist of Boone, NC

Alice Osborn hauntingly and painfully updates and expands the use of domestic imagery as an expression of that narrow dream's tyranny, adding to it the expectations and regimentation inherited from a successful military grandfather, and the inevitable insufficiency of everything else. —Scott Owens, poet of Hickory, NC

This is a book crammed with images, explicit descriptions, characters and emotions. It needs to be read.—Sara Claytor, poet of Carrboro, NC
