Format: Paperback
Ms. DeFord loves the circus of New York as she captures the pathos,
fun, adventure in her poems. I have only been able to put it down when
duties call. I recommend this simple yet sweet book to anyone who
wants to share an adventure of how a lonely new resident of NYC comes
to find peace, love and contentment in the big city.

"Dogs of Brooklyn" is a great inaugural work by Susie DeFord.

Far too often poetry comes across as overly self-indulgent, where if you're not privy to its sly witticisms and esoteric references, the meaning and purpose are so obscured as to render the lines empty to those of us who do not live in the ivory towers of academia and literary reviews. [If you've ever read the New Yorker you know what I mean]

Thankfully, "Dogs of Brooklyn" is NOT that kind of poetry.

While skillfully and intelligently wielding a variety of poetic devices (sonnet & sestina lovers won't be disappointed), Susie DeFord has crafted a collection that is still earthbound and accessible in the best tradition of the common people's poet. She weaves words into images and episodes, bringing to life the world in which she inhabits -- sketching the trials and tribulations of making it in the big city.

"Dogs of Brooklyn" brings to life the crazy, colorful denizens of Brooklyn's Park Slope and Prospect Heights, as well as their tirelessly faithful canine companions (and a few felines too). This volume will speak not only to the poetry lover, but to the dog fanatic and the urban adventurer - or really anyone who enjoys a good read.

All in all, I heartily recommended this book.

susie captures brooklyn's infectious rhythms in her staccato observations, through the eyes of the dogs, and in her own keen poetic sensibilities. the poems are a joy to read and will have brooklynians, canine-adorers, and those whom appreciate evocative and fun writing, smiling equally!!
