You will love Dorsey Craft’s rollicking persona, Pirate Anne Bonny, who, in this thrilling book of poems, serves up heaps of scintillant treasures from the bottomless trunk of her imagination, wit, and verve. In Plunder, Jack Sparrow has met his match.
author of Beautiful Trouble
Dorsey Craft’s poetry collection is a ship full of jewels. Each exquisite poem is a glinting doubloon, a double-sided coin whose currency is both bravery and vulnerability. The pirate Anne Bonny is a brash companion and welcome conspirator in this book. Plunder rollicks with charisma while navigating the often perilous waters of womanhood.
