Four Way Books, 10/2011
Bad Daughter is a bad ass book. This is Gorham's fourth book of poems, totally unlike the previous three. Full of knife-edge observations on childhood, grandparent-hood, the life of animals and the grit of evolving character. Totally undaunted by unpleasantness, maybe enriched by it, these poems are full of successful experiments. Gorham's got that gift of the visual simile, where you say, "Yes! That's it, I see it!" and after you've finished the book you realize you've agreed on much more than appearances, that you carry an emotionally charged association too. I wish for 100 more Gorham books.
