Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Unflinchingly honest and deeply compassionate, the poetry of Lisa Wells demands our attention. Here is a compelling voice that speaks to things as they are, but that also echoes a hope for what they, and we, might become." --W.E. Butts

Review:

Yet redemption comes through the very act of shaping language, observing nature, and the crafting of beautiful pieces out of horror. While the situations described may make humanity seem insane, our instinct for life is our saving grace: The road’s yellow stitch hems me to earth/ fragile as a swatch of sun, but enough to keep me driving." --Calyx Journal
