Publishers Weekly (06/18/2001):
Baumgaertner, an English professor at Wheaton College, writes of being a young girl in America while her Cuban relatives try to flee Castro's regime; of her grandmother in prerevolutionary Cuba; of a latter-day Adam and Eve. The serial poem Leaving Eden contends with the new and the foreign: "What does breathing have to do with it, he wants to know// ...His respiration fills with utterance, / his mind with images of skunk, / pigeon, ibex, wallaby."
