1.0 out of 5 stars book on solitude but author is married, November 2, 2012
This author of a book on solitude is married, which is ironic, isn't it. And that's all you need to know about whether to read this book or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars jumping with fuel into the fire, July 4, 2012
"Passion, blood, fire, spirit, grit: this album is a headfirst plunge into' ice water; it shocks you awake."

A shock alright, but more like jumping with fuel into the fire. Darkness on the Edge of Town 1978 -- Springsteen angry and sad as hell-- his most raw, stripped down, fiery, and intense album--and yet large-- he wrote and sang his guts out on this one--
my favorite Springsteen record--

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot recommend highly enough!, January 28, 2012
This review is from: Reporting from Night (Paperback)
I recently read Reporting From Night two times through in one night, and was in no doubt I was in the presence of a marvelous and excellent poet. These poems are playful, wondrous, melancholy, searingly honest and brave acts of writing. (And they were often written in the middle of the night to account for the author's busy schedule as a mother of three young children.) The poems gathered in this book--Ms. Lanthier's first book of poems--are explorations both into dream time and real life, and into the blurry and always fresh line between the two. In these poems you will find twilight ecstasy, concise night dreams, vivid punchy tableaux, fervid memories of former lives, slurred eroticism, preternatural stillness, utter wide-eyed clarity before the world that teems with object upon object, simple deep visions that suddenly upend one's normal way of seeing things, the startling quickness of new romance, and deep abiding mother-love always listening, listening to the children's magic ways and utterances. I can't recommend this book of poems highly enough. Kateri Lanthier has a fresh and unmistakably original poetic voice, and she writes with great honesty and intelligence and utter vividness. The book has been a creative inspiration to me.
