Addonizio doesn't do pretty; beneath her considerable wit is a wickedly sharp edge. Library Journal, starred review

With both passion and precision, Lucifer at the Starlite explores lifes dual nature: good and evil, light and dark, suffering and moments of unexpected joy. Whether looking outward to events on the world stagethe war in Iraq, the 2004 Asian tsunamior inward at struggles with the self, these poems aim at the heart and against the feeling that Lucifer may have already won the day.

from Lucifer at the Starlite
Heres my bright idea for life on earth:
better management. The CEO
has lost touch with the details. Im worth
as much, but I care; I come down here, I show
my face, Im a real regular. A toast:
To our boys and girls in the war, grinding
through sand, to everybody here, our host
whos mostly mist, like methane rising
