Mary Jo Salter

Christopher Lydon is almost always interesting, surprising, enlightening. Today’s wonder is an encounter with a poet, Mary Jo Salter. What first caught my eye was the text of Salter’s “Young Girl Peeling Apples” and I predict you’ll enjoy it too. Here’s the 34-minute interview, and it’s quite worthwhile. Me, I don’t usually buy poetry, but I’m making an exception by ordering her Phone Call to the Future. The UPS Man will deliver it in a couple of days.
