The terrific opening poem, "An Inventory of Lost Things," with its focus
on loss and its movement between different areas of culture ("Lot's Wife..."
Gina Lollobrigida"), serves as an overture of what's to come: memorable
imagery, idiomatic and sonic pleasures galore, a gendered I/eye that states,
explores, lists, and narrates female experience, desire, artifacts, loss, and celebrations.
In her poem "Cheap Talk" Huston ends with the lines "the hopeful work/ to get it
where it feels so damned right." In The Theory of Lipstick, poem by poem, Huston
gets it "so damned right."

Susan Firer, author of Milwaukee Does Strange Things to People
