Abstract:

Stark and sensual, energetic and intimate, That Kind of Danger explores the dangers, histories, and passions of the life of the city - from its violences to its surprising occasions of beauty. Donna Masini writes frankly, sometimes painfully, about sex, about working-class roots and immigrant experience, about the dangers and failures of family life, the architecture of desire, the dynamics of our erotic lives.

With a driving music and often startling power, these poems are about the way lives are broken and rebuilt, the layers of history we are often oblivious to, the redemptive and transforming power of memory and imagination. Urgent, unwavering, this provocative debut volume ultimately celebrates the tentative yet joyful moments of transcendence and grace that seeing and naming render possible.
