Sandra Beasley’s debut is bold and seductive, the kind of book you’d be drawn to even if you hadn’t seen it on the shelf wedged between Charles Baudelaire and Elizabeth Bishop….[W]hat makes it a truly remarkable collection is how Beasley undercuts the gravity of each theme with a fresh sense of metaphor, and how she challenges a poem’s limitations. Theories of Falling has not only given us a new voice to pay attention to, but it thrusts Sandra Beasley to the forefront of an increasing number of young, influential contemporary American poets.
