Lillian-Yvonne Bertram: Historian and Cartographer

Cristina Preda from The Operating System hails Lillian-Yvonne Bertram as both a historian and cartographer, as the poems in Betram's debut collection, But a Storm is Blowing from Paradise, take the reader through different places in time and space.

Preda writes, "A number of Bertram’s poems toy with the concept and construct of time such that she is able to assume the role of historian in real time. The result leaves you mouthing goddamn to yourself until your stop comes up on the subway."
