On Sunday, a Finch by Cassandra Dallett


Sharp as a razor clam, soft as the animal inside, in On Sunday, a Finch, Dallett’s emotions crystallize in this slim volume to spell out her love experience with a vengeance. 

What People Are Saying

“These poems speak of love, sex and relationships in the way they are actually lived, with all the pleasures and brutality. They are tender, bitter and, above all, unfailingly true.”

William Taylor, Jr., author of Age of Monsters (2011) and Blood of a Tourist (2015) 

“In poem upon poem, Cassandra Dallett pours out her cool and steaming heart in unmeasured rounds of bittersweet toasts and takes. Dallett’s voice and vision shine.”  

Al Young, California Poet Laureate and author of Something About the Blues: An Unlikely Collection of Poetry (2008)

“Cassandra Dallett writes like a feminist self-aware Charles Bukowski. Sure there’s plenty of sex, drugs, violence, and rock ‘n’ roll, but there’s a lot of quiet ‘spots of time,’ as Wordsworth would say, where the clearly defined and explained devolves into the philosophical, and the stereotype changes into a nuanced portrait. . . . Dallett never apologizes for or shies away from her own faults, cravings, addictions, and mistakes.”

Christine Hamm, author of Saints & Cannibals (2010), Echo Park (2011), and A is For Absence (2014)
