Never afraid to show her displeasure with life and love or her sheer delight of it, Erica's work is provacative and a joy to read. She calls to mind such other poets as Pablo Neruda and Sylvia Plath, both of whom are excellent in their own right.
As a male I find her work refreshing and brutally honest and in a age where those qualities are looked down on I'm delighted that Erica has remained true to that inner voice.
Erica writes lovingly of the lowly Onion! "I am thinking of the onion again, with it's two O mouths, like the gaping holes in nobody. . . . " and it is pure ecstasy! I highly recommend this book to all poetry lovers. Also visite her website for even more inspriation: ericajong.com.
