Editorial Reviews

Review

"... the great joy of this book, I think, is in the unexpected phrase, couplet or verse that stops you in your tracks and forces you to smile, raise your eyebrows or laugh out loud. The poems are frequently arresting, funny and witty." -Simon John Cox, author of "The Restoration Man"


"The Hole Between Mine and Yours delivers everything we like about poetry slams (lots of rhyming going on here, and bold deliveries) without having to sit next to someone's unwashed dreadlocks. It's a win-win." -Leslea Tash, Goodreads

The Hole Between Mine and Yours: Liquid Logic from a Dirty Tumbler by Christina Grey is the first poetry collection that's really forced me to think in quite some time.

When I hear of some poetic great and look up his or her work, typically I find a few poems that make me gasp in writerly jealousy. Once in awhile, I'm even moved to download their book, or pick it up at the library or bookstore. Rarely do I find myself curious what he or she will say next.

The Hole was a much-different story.

If you like poetry, you'll like this book. If you like women, you'll love this book. If you like thinking, you'll love this book. If you've read The Ethical Slut, you would probably like this book. For $.99, I urge you strongly to give it a try.

I must admit that I bought this book for the shallowest of reasons - I was intrigued by the title, I liked the dirty-sexy face on the cover, and it was only 99 cents.

This poetry is thoughtful and personal. There are about 50 poems here, some short and to the point, some longer and almost chant-like, some a bit steamy, some quite subtle, and almost always thought-provoking. I found myself backtracking at times and saying oh, I see what you did there, nice.

I say she's no Bukowski not because her style is anything like his, it's not of course, but simply because Charles Bukowski (as far as I know) never wrote about a trip to his gynecologist. The sexy, funny poem "Lengthy Hollow" takes me to a world I'll never know.

As another example, "Going" makes ingenious argument against sloppy use of today's catchall phrase "going green". (Speaking of the word "sloppy", I want to see the phrase "sloppy wink", as used in "Melting", adopted by more authors.)

All this makes for an enjoyable read, and a strong first outing by the author. (I am assuming this is her first book because I don't see any others listed).

Fair warning: there is no poem named "The Hole Between Mine and Yours" in the collection, so the mystery remains.

Clocking in at aprox. 110 pages this book of poems is a bit refreshing from some of the overly flowery poetry that people love to read. I like poetry, every now and then, but usually it's of the darker variety. This book has some serious sections, some funny and some very personal stuff too, i.e. trips to the gyno. I think if you like poetry with some flare then this is worth a look
