Amanda Clarkabout this book: Through the Blinds is my fourth book of poetry following Looking at the Moon, Flying Fall, and Beautifully Mixed Up World. I consider these books to be chapters of my life. Through the Blinds was written after I graduated college in Dallas, Texas and moved back East to my home state of Vermont. Similarly to my others books, Through the Blinds is written in poetic diary form. This latest chapter deals with new careers, long distance relationships, and the vulnerabilities associated with being 23.
This book is also special because I decided to break away from my previous publishers and publish this with my very new small press, Steady Moon Press. I designed the cover with photos of my own, and edited it on my own with the help of interns.
This book was written seven years ago, and has been edited, reviewed, and formatted many times. It documents a full year of my life. I chose the title, Through the Blinds because blinds tend to cover up what is really inside. There are also two sides to blinds, those looking out, and those looking in. This title is a metaphor for my life during that volatile time.
I would like to thank all of my readers for following me on my journey by reading each poetic diary. I am fortunate to hold books that represent chapters of my life. I hope you grab a Through the Blinds and enjoy, relate, and learn from the next chapter...
