Review of BECOMING LYLA DORE
Reviewed by Cindy Hochman from Skullwise Cat (page 69)
“Teri Youmans Grimm’s account is as ambitious and seductive as Lyla Dore herself. With poems that unfold as grandly as scenes from the acclaimed films of yesteryear, the poet offers the reader a front-row VIP seat to the juiciest kind of guilty pleasure: a world of glamour and glitz, and, of course, the lurid underpinnings that often accompany these chimerical trappings.”
“BECOMING LYLA DORE is an evocative series of first-person poems about an imaginary but enchanting vamp who makes her cinematic mark using everything but her voice—conjured by an extraordinary poet named Grimm whose dramatic fairytale is anything but silent.”
