Editorial Reviews


Kathryn Jordan’s Riding Waves is not for the faint of spirit. Do not pick it up unless you are prepared to be jolted by hurts, inspired by survival, and charmed by metaphors that can only come from a wounded place within us.

John Warley, author of A Southern Girl



Kathryn Jordan’s beautiful book reverberates with the beauty and pain of a lost era. Scenes from a fragmented military childhood at the height of the Vietnam War are interspersed with meditations on Nature, family, love, loss, travel and music. It’s a rich tapestry of memory and spiritual inquiry. Jordan finds her way through a tumultuous time by paying rapt attention to the sensory details and small epiphanies that accompanied her on her journey.

Alison Luterman, author of Desire Zoo



A strong book, crafted and elegant, utterly unsparing of hard truths and lit ablaze by the flamed-open heart of saying. These are poems that pull us close with their unflinching presence; roped in, caught up by Kathe Jordan’s work, we turn pages that spill a tough and aching history, broken, bled through, and fraught with beauty.

Judyth Hill, editor, poet, author of Dazzle Wobble
