Editorial Reviews


Though the book is called Suspension, there is no hesitation here in how Paige Riehl describes the complicated, outrageous, glorious, and grief-stricken world in which we all live. The subjects are varied--love, children, illness, travel--but the voice speaking the poems goes unfailingly to the challenges of our 21st-century western world. The poems often afford a resolution, no matter how momentary. There is rawness here as well as delight. Perhaps most telling, the book is a sustained meditation on love in its many guises. As such, it is a gift, and it is our luck as readers to be its recipients. --Jim Moore

Paige Riehl's poems explore constant and probing questions that arise with the crossing of thresholds. Whether exploring questions of motherhood, family, with whom one belongs, or whether the poem's speaker is an unfurled ribbon investigating the self, Riehl proceeds with elegance and certitude. As one's course in the world is shifted, she offers readers the grace notes to read such transitions with bewilderment and with the understanding of each new moment's possibility. --Oliver de la Paz

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Healing
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 14, 2022
Suspension is the temporary prevention of something from continuing, according to the Oxford Dictionary. While reading Paige Riehl's collection of poetry, I too felt in a state of suspension. I felt unable to turn a page, as I had to stop and reflect on the context, the mood, the intent, and the beauty of the words, before I could go on. Each poem temporally left me unable to start a new poem until I had time to allow it to weave through my mind and even my soul. Suspension still haunts me and it still heals me.
