Reviews




Bella DePaulo from Psychology Today posted a fantastic review of Ellen Meeropol's newest book, House Arrest:

In a recent article on iBerkshires, Phyllis McGuire says that Michael Quadland's Offspring is "ultimately about a search for truth — not honesty in the moral sense, but the truth about ourselves, who we really are, what we believe in and where we fit in the world."

Kennebec Journal says that "Meeropol deftly combines her medical experience with solid writing talent to produce a suspenseful yet warm and sensitive story that explores right and wrong, the unequal balance between rigid law and common sense, and the decisions people make when faced with tough life choices."

In a recent review, Escape Pod had this to say about Fade to Black by Josh Pryor-

Cheryl Wright-Watkins for NewPages had this to say about Brian Doyle's Bin Laden's Bald Spot:

Rigoberto Gonzalez gives praise for Lillian-Yvonne Bertram's But a Storm is Blowing From Paradise in the latest Harriett blog, saying:

The Courier-Journal's Kathleen Driskell had this to say about Lynnell Edwards' Covet:

In a recent Writeliving's Blog post, author Martin Ott talks about his connection to fellow Alaskan Nicole Stellon O'Donnell, and her new collection of poetry, Steam Laundry.

Veteran David Willson has just reviewed Offspring on "Books in Brief," an online feature that complements “Books in Review,” which runs in The VVA Veteran, the national magazine of Vietnam Veterans of America. Here is what he had to say about the book -

Cult. Bomb author Danielle Mitchell recently blogged this about Calamity Joe, Brendan Constantine's newest collection of poems from Red Hen Press:

Shelf Awareness' Tom Lavoie has this to say about Ron Carlson's Room Service: "The poems and prose pieces in Room Service are thoughtful, witty, sad and hopeful--rarely angry or mad. They reveal Ron Carlson as a humble writer you can enjoy over and over. Discover: Short prose and poems from a 'master of idiosyncrasy' who entertains, educates and surprises at every turn."

In a recent Catholic Books Review article, Arthur J. Kubick had this to say about Imagine No Religion: The Autobiography of Blase Bonpane -

“Dungy captures the human heart and soul in her characters while illustrating the rawness of their suffering with gracefully blatant and rebellious passion.”

In Strong Verse, G.M. Palmer says this about Among the Goddesses- "Like any poet of worth, Finch produces beautiful lines, by themselves worth the price of admission.”

In the recent Valparaiso Poetry Review, Paul David Adkins had this to say about Tongue-

Lee Polevoi of the Los Angeles Review of Books says that, "Bin Laden's Bald Spot encompasses worlds of absurdity and quotidian reality in the voices of ordinary citizens. Underneath the surface is a tenderness and attachment to life that makes the best of these stories really and truly sing."

In the Connecticut River Review, Emilia Phillips says that "Brewer's intentions in Give Over, Graymalkin waver between reverence and ravaging, and the tension between the two creates an energy that pushes the boundaries of the poems' uncomplicated but tight forms, and enswarms the reader, bewildering him or her to give over and to follow Brewer wherever he may go."

In the Asheville Poetry Review, Patrick Bizzaro had this to say about Gaylord Brewer's Give Over, Graymalkin- "As poetry, Brewer's work avoids sentimentality and instead reveals the inner workings of a mind in pain. There poems give us the sense that they are personal, the author and narrator nearly identical in time and place."

Recently, James A. Cox of The Midwest Book Review had this to say about Genevieve Kaplan – "In the ice house is a core addition to any modern poetry collection."
