If long-dead poet E.A. Robinson and Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell had collaborated to depict a contemporary Midwestern woman in verse, they just might have come up with Wynona Stone, Caki Wilkinson’s sort-of heroine, who is stuck in the hometown she always meant to leave, faced with a life that seems desperately mediocre. Wilkinson follows in the footsteps of Eliot and Berryman, giving us, in winsome poems, a figure at odds with herself and her surroundings.
Caki Wilkinson received her MFA from the Johns Hopkins University and her PhD from the University of Cincinnati. Her first collection, Circles Where the Head Should Be, won the Vassar Miller Prize, selected by J. D. McClatchy. She is Assistant Professor of English at Rhodes College in Memphis.

Editorial Reviews

Caki Wilkinson pulls off something miraculous in The Wynona Stone Poems , a collection that is both confessional and mythological, deeply personal as it charts the course of an utterly strange woman. In focusing on her title character, a singular creation, Wilkinson says something about what it means to be female—living, loving, aging—in turns of phrase that are odd and perfect and stick to you like gum. — Lena Dunham
