The Singing Is My Favorite Part is a collection of poems which sing the escape of our ordinary world and how the ordinary world is in our escape. It does so with a lovely voice, keen images, and perfect comic timing. Brown is able to write desire and fulfillment through multiple forms—whether villanelle, pantoum, sestina, or free-verse lyric. The beauty of this collection’s technique lies in the nuance of details: the “hands neatly folded in her lap / like wedding napkins, not in prayer;” the “skin like a drawing under tracing;” and when “the spider slips / past a slack lip and you swallow / him whole.” That’s how this wonderful work takes on the world—in a quiet devouring.

“Susan Elliott Brown’s poems are so whip-smart, so elegant I need to dress up to read them. I’d like to take them to a Montmartre café so they can feel the sun of Paris as I savor each with coffee and croissant. I’d like to make them my tiny house, and open my eyes to them every day.”

–Angela Ball, author of The Night Clerk at the Hotel of Both Worlds
