Story | Feb 16, 2013 | 6:50 PMThe only time I met the poet Rae Armantrout, a few years ago, I escorted her from her hotel to the lecture hall at the University of Chicago where she was to read. We chatted, and she mentioned that she had a new book coming out. I asked her what it was called. “‘Money Shot,'” said this smallish, birdlike woman in her early 60s. The incongruity of hearing such a phrase issue from such a mouth (Google it if you don't know what it means; this is a family paper) strikes me now as an apt metaphor for Armantrout's career and work.
