Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Esther Lee's Spit is delightful and wise, heartfelt and unsentimental. Like magma simmering underneath the earth's crust, the poems shimmer with desire, joy, anger, longing, but the emotion never cracks. The voice is playful, restrained, utterly present. The consciousness in these poems lend tenderness, humor and sorrow to an otherwise violent and discomfiting reality, a place where family members are left behind in a war and children walk in huge shoes on glass floors carrying lemonade on a tray...something is going to break. The disjointed syntax and surprising juxtapositions is both hilarious and discomfiting. "When the muffler fell off my car and onto the street, I cradled the rusted hollow like a dying pig." At times the language is so bent that it is difficult to make sense of it. But the taut musicality of the language and authority of the voice assures the reader that we are in good hands. I am convinced despite my uncertainty.
