Gaynell Gavin is the author of Attorney-at-Large, the novella she wrote after several years of family and juvenile law practice.  Praised for its "fluent and urgent prose," Attorney-at-Large has also been commended for its description of "practicing triage law." Gavin's previous book, Intersections, consists of poems on place, work, and family life.

Gavin's debut fiction features "Anarchy Barbie," a spirited lawyer struggling to raise a son while learning the legal ropes as she represents the downtrodden, teens, abused children. Equal parts satirical, sad, funny and tender. . . .

-- Boulder Daily Camera

Attorney-at-Large is a book of the heart and mind--passionate, courageous, and stirring. Want to see how the law really works for children and families?

-- Lisa Knopp, author of What the River Carries: Encounters with the Mississippi, Missouri, and Platte

These personal, narrative poems are profoundly engaged with the world, its permutations of power and poverty, haunting subjects and speakers, private and public. . . . Carl Dennis argues in Poetry as Persuasion that the voice of authority is a communal one, directed toward the making of communities. Assuming this formulation is accurate, Gaynell Gavin becomes a kind of poetic ur-mother. . .to enlarge our notions of the way community should be defined.
