Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The poems in Jonterri Gadson’s PEPPER GIRL certainly live up to their title—spicy, provocative, pungent. These capacious and generous poems hold bodies full of candid desire and blood---the blood of passion, family, and violence. Gadson’s lines brim with spunk and grit, humor and heartbreak. Her imagination is acrobatic in dazzle and prayerful in its grace.

-Denise Duhamel

Review:

Pepper Girl is a new chapbook by Jonterri Gadson, who, incidentally, is quite charming on Twitter. I just got the book in the mail today and didn’t intend to read the whole thing tonight, but I couldn’t stop myself. The poems are funny and thoughtful, serious but playful. One will lull you into an amused sense of safety with its humor and sound, and the next will punch you in the gut.

-Sacha Siskonen, The Saskatchewan Review
