Overview

"A startling new voice."
--Patricia Smith, Author of Big Towns, Big Talk

Collin Kelley's debut, Better To Travel, is a haunting cycle of poetry dispatched from the teeming streets of London and New York to the decadence of Paris and New Orleans. From these far-flung outposts, Kelley deftly and unblinkingly conveys the end of a relationship and the need to escape to "sights unseen." Readers have compared Kelley's poetry to the emotional work of Anne Sexton and Sharon Olds. This is confessional poetry in its truest form: raw, uninhibited and unflinching.

    Better To Travel Is Best Read In Private

    Collin Kelley's keen eye into the soul is like peeping into someone's pain, or your own. Read in private because it can reach you, suddenly, in the place you thought was safely hidden. Honesty, with compassion and forgiveness, Kelley's is an empathetic, and beautiful soul. I look forward to his next book.

    Excellent debut!

    A beautiful first book of poetry. Read in order, the poems are almost like reading a novel. Kelley has an amazing command of the English language and his sharp observations about love, loss and world events are spot on in every poem. Highly recommended.
