Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Brilliantly written. Lasky strips language from a kind of otherworldly dialogue with the dark. This collection brings Plath, demons, depression, humor, childlike creativity, celebration, all into the poems and much more. If you are open to taking a trip with the author, you are greatly rewarded. But, you will continue to be rewarded...because, the words stay with you...or, at least, their power. Buy this, if only to read poetry that finally meets the mark every teacher promised in high school or college. Hey, Rangda! Hey, Rangda, Hey!
