Judith Kitchen regularly reviews poetry for The Georgia Review. Recent essays have appeared in The Georgia Review, Prairie Schooner, and Tri-Quarterly Online; another is forthcoming in Great River Review. Her third book of essays is forthcoming from Coffee House Press in 2012. She serves on the faculty of the Rainier Writing Workshop, low-residency MFA at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. Defunct in her life:more than she cares to admit. Drive-in hamburger joints, drive-in movies, circle skirts with layers of crinolines, saddle shoes, the Edsel, drugstores with counters and stools that spin and milkshake machines, a typewriter for a graduation present, whitewall tires, James Dean, parking, petting, dial telephones, and those are just from the fifties. She could go on—and on.
