TOUGH ENOUGH is a rare collection of poetry from four incredible women; Annie Menebroker, Victoria Dalkey, Kathryn Hohlwein and Viola Weinberg. The collection offers a unique look into the writing of these four formidable voices and offers the reader a chance to experience their "shared" journey as Tough Old Broads while at the same time maintaining their individual journeys through life as poets, mothers, wives, and confidants; their poetry enriching us with beauty, poise, grace and at times, gritty realism. It is a collection of unique voices weaving a storied tapestry of words and images the reader will turn back to again and again. This is a timeless journey of life lived to its fullest. Grand in one moment, heartbreakingly difficult the next, this is as honest a look at four friends and their journey through poetry that you will ever find.

Four different strains of speculative intelligence. Four lifetimes sorted. The same years captured by different sensibilities—all with that certain ache that is poetry. What I like is the rich mix of memory & public commentary. Annie Menebroker’s lyrics bursts, for example—the cogent self-questioning that turns to larger issues. Kathryn Hohlwein’s spiritual sense in poems that are moving & insightful, always emotionally right. It’s not by chance that the four poets have integrated their gifts & their life-work. From her practice as an art critic, Victoria Dalkey seems to take her vision & feel for order, her wit & sense of tonal shift. Viola Weinberg recaptures, exuberant & expansive, in the know, the challenges of working in the media & being a mother. Her intense & dramatic poem, “Arthur’s Seat, the Easy Way,” about climbing Scotland’s almost mythic height, in spite of her health & physical limits, is about the transcendence that is the task for all four poets.

What a pleasure and delight to find four poets whose work I have loved and admired for many years gathered together here. Sly, witty, passionate, painterly, erudite voices calling out to us--to our hearts--from the heart of the mysterious quotidians. This book, these poems are a great gift.
