By Billy Stoneham on January 19, 2009
Format: Paperback
Susan Lewis seems to me like a less austere and more playful Louise Gluck. Like Gluck's Pulitzer-Prize-winning The Wild Iris, Lewis's Animal Husbandry attains its unsentimental force by favoring observations of the natural world over cliched expressions of human emotion. When Lewis envies how "any flower knows /when to drop its thoughtless pollen," or ruminates that she has "heard that fishes cry, / undaunted by their muffling element," we trust keen observations of nature as much as we appreciate the simple, unforgettable expression in which they are embodied. This first collection shows is author to be both a naturalist and a natural.

Format: Paperback
Susan Lewis's new chapbook is enchanting, enticing and wise. From the cover art to the poems, there is an aliveness to this collection that wakes the reader up time and time again with a delightful, but kind jolt. The book sits next to my bed where I can savor it slowly. What a treat to explore brilliantly chiseled, sculptural poems about our humble efforts to be in relationship.

Our family, teenage boys and parents, enjoyed sitting around the fireplace and reading this collection. The language is fresh, surprising, and fun. I personally felt washed and awakened in the fearless awareness of Lewis' phrases, and tickled by the playful novelty of how she brings words together. My son said, why don't you just write: "Two thumbs up!"

Format: Paperback
This book of poetry is riveting. The imagery created by Susan Lewis' fluid and elegant language are by turns seductive and slightly scary. The intimacy that she she shares with us is truly original. A brilliant new voice. I love the cover art, it is a perfect compliment to the poems.
