Summary
This collection of new poems and old favorites, some long out of print and many never collected in Piercy's previous books is titled in homage to the 'Grrrl' phenomenon - a contemporary expression of the pride and passion of young women's lives exploding in books and zines, concerts, films, and the internetwhich in its honesty, accessibility and humor embodies the spirit of the poet's early work. Early Grrrl presents the bold and passionate ecological and political verse for which Piercy is well known alongside poems celebrating the sensual pleasures of gardening and cooking and sex; funny poems about cats and New Year's Eve and warring boom boxes; vulnerable poems in which a young working class woman from the Midwest takes stock of herself and the limits of her world
