News at Eleven: "I didn't get Y characteristics that much

until I had a boy. But I've entertained a lot of little boys in my house over the last 10 years, and they have taught me a lot. And my boy, and some of those boys, and some of those lessons and ideas appear in these poems. Maybe not literally, but the ideas that came from my observations of them. I was really conscious when I was writing that I not be invasive and that my kid, when he's older, not be embarrassed by anything I write." [--Leslie Adrienne Miller]
