  • Displaying a sure sense of craft and a sharp facility for linking personal experience to the public realms of history and politics, Jehanne Dubrow s Red Army Red chronicles the coming of age of a child of American diplomats in Eastern Europe in the 1980s In the last moments of the Cold War, Poland the setting for many of the poems lurches fitfully from a society characterDisplaying a sure sense of craft and a sharp facility for linking personal experience to the public realms of history and politics, Jehanne Dubrow s Red Army Red chronicles the coming of age of a child of American diplomats in Eastern Europe in the 1980s In the last moments of the Cold War, Poland the setting for many of the poems lurches fitfully from a society characterized by hardship and deprivation toward a free market economy The contradictions and turmoil generated by this transition are the context in which an adolescent girl awakens to her sexuality With wit and subtlety, Dubrow makes apparent the parallels between the body and the body politic, between the fulfillment of individual and collective desires.

    Wonderful collection!

    Before I begin, I should admit to my biases. I like Jehanne Dubrow. She is a kind and intelligent person with a wonderfully irreverent sense of humor (that is very similar to mine) and I consider her a friend. But I am also a poet, and in this capacity, I have been following Jehanne’s work since the release of her first collection, The Hardship Post, in 2009. Each collection of hers is a poetic study, a project. String the poems together and you will see a loose narrative formed there in betwe [...]

    An absolutely wonderful collection of lyric poems exploring the author's coming of age in Poland in the late 80s, from the Chernobyl accident to the fall of the Soviet bloc, as well as a section of poems on living in America after that experience.

    This book brought back so many memories of living in Poland. Although we were there at different times, I loved reading about her experiences there and how things changed and didn't. Some of the poems were so tantalizing I wished they could have been expanded--that I could have been let into the whole story.
