'Suspect' with Poet Erin Malone

Elizabeth Austen

Seattle poet Erin Malone's experience of new motherhood did not exactly square with the Hallmark card version. In her poem "Suspect," she considers how one new mother feels about her body, leading KUOW's literary producer Elizabeth Austen to consider some assumptions about motherhood.

Malone is the author of a chapbook, "What Sound Does It Make" (Concrete Wolf, 2008), and has taught writing at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, at Richard Hugo House in Seattle, and at the University of Washington Rome Center in Italy. She lives in Seattle with her husband and son.

Her reading was recorded March 9, 2009 in the KUOW studios.
