Double Tongues: Poems

Front cover of the book Double Tongues by Mary Kathleen Hawley

Praise for Double Tongues:


"Mary Kathleen Hawley has accomplished something in Double Tongues that is as rare a find as an agate on the beach. She has given us "just enough." Her language is spare, direct and potent, allowing the strong descriptive core of each poem to gather weightier issues around it..."

—Julie K. Barnes, Another Chicago Magazine


"Her writing is more than lyrical; it is completely musical—filled with rhythms and dynamics that capture the reader like a good Coltrain album."

—Paul Barile, Letter eX
