Title: Lost In Lea Southeast New Mexico Poems Hardcover – January 1, 2008
“These poems of Peter Mladinic lay their fingers on the pulse of Lea County, past and present. Whether he is pondering the gravestones of past inhabitants, or wondering about present friends and neighbors, Mladinic is in tune with and an integral part of the history that surrounds him. As a poet who recognizes himself a vital part of where he is, his poems ‘light a match in the dark/and spot on the map of grief the spot/where two rivers converge.” – Glen Sorestad

I love Peter Mladinic's poetry, but this collection is my favorite. Stark and unforgiving, yet sentimental and warm, the collection brings to life the heart of southeastern New Mexico and what life is like there, experienced through the eyes of a poet who is in touch with his surroundings, and can speak of them with a finesse that leaves you changed. Mladinic gives us a view of life as it IS, not as we wish it could be, and this makes for unforgettable poetry.
