A True Collection Of Favorites
Valerie Thomas introduces poetry readers to her unique cadence and rhythm within the first few pages of her stirring collection, set within family situations and reflecting the challenges that intimate relationships bring.Was this review helpful?

The flashes of imagery that are layered on top of daily and familial life will please most fans of poetry, as Thomas puts life's normal moments into birth. You're sure to share the narrator's sentiments about secret lives, damaging actions, and inflated egos, especially if you've experienced similar intrigues in your own life.
Be sure to visit "Children, Children" for a look into the wealth of emotions that mothering brings, while "Ego" is likely to leave readers angry and hurt on behalf of the author. A true collection of favorites!

"In-Your-Face Poetry" , October 6, 2008 By Debra Gaynor "Debra Gaynor" (Hawesville, KY USA
Written by: Valerie Thomas <BR/>Published by: Outskirts <BR/>Reviewed by: Stephanie Rollins for ReviewYourBook.com 10/2008 <BR/>ISBN: 978-1-4327-3146-5 <BR/>"In-Your-Face Poetry" 4 stars <BR/>At ReviewYourBook.com, we are very honest about our dislike of poetry. Deep Emotions has appeal for even the anti-poetry reviewer like myself. <BR/>The poems are a bit bold in nature. They are in-your-face in regard to sexuality and longing emotions. This book is not for those who blush easily. For the more adventurous, dive in.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
