Lisa Lewis is a force in contemporary American poetry. Her work echoes with raw emotion, exposing the deeply human and the deeply felt with gritty realism, convincing detail, and an honest conversational voice that reaches out and grabs the reader, demanding to be heard. As bold as she is unforgettable, Lewis has written another powerful collection, a gift to her faithful readers.

I would characterize the 'voice' in this collection as wounded to slowness, to prairie existentialism; unsentimental because unpredictable. You'll want to sit for a bit, instead of sashaying around; reconsider 'commitment' to poetry and to reading; time spent reading isn't ever time wasted. The 'girl' speaking in her earlier books is the 'girl' speaking in this book, and she is still looking out the window, cigarette between fingers, not quite ready to burn it all down.
