"...deconstructed soap-opera, a one-hundred-ring verbal circus, a gang of brazen, ingenious poems." -- Billy Collins
"Sharp and ripe, smart-alecky and wise, Hecht's poems...reveal a world far more witty than we thought..." --Janet Holmes (competition judge's summary)
About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The poet states her intent as creating a book of advice to the next ancient world, and many of her poems demand some response, such as "Please Answer All Three of the Following Essay Questions", or "Convince Him", poems that seem to help the reader create their own story beyond the bounds of a simple book. This becomes a magic that even the cynical and jaded reader can still accept, couched in sophisticated lyric and sharp wit.
If you are willing to be inspire by the creations of a precise and yet tender mind, you may gain something from this work. Poems that make you think, laugh, sigh, and sometimes shiver, all packed into a slim volume: What a value!!!
