A young woman navigates her modeling career between Paris and New York, juxtaposing the pressures of the fashion world with the depths of psychiatric care and romantic relationships. Megan Fennya Jones’ debut collection of poetry, The Program (Goose Lane Editions $19.95), explores female suffering through an unadorned, sometimes humorous narrative style inspired by New York school poets, Frank O’Hara, Sheila Heti and Sally Rooney. The poems cover themes of appearance and self-perception, using imagery from fashion, art and therapy. This intimate collection examines how we are seen and how we see ourselves, revealing the allure and pain of both visibility and suffering. 9781773102528
