Editorial Reviews

Suzanne Namow
This beautiful collection of poetry speaks of childhood memories, glimpses of the South as only a true native of the South can speak, longing, loneliness, and the everyday. Ms. Conway lays bare her experiences of living on the streets, of childhood friends lost to suicide, of the horror of Hurricane Katrina, and the comforting memories of grandmas house. This collection of poetry is a roller coaster ride of emotions and images....yet it succeeds because of its authenticity. Beautifully written.
Rachel Howzell
Tracy Conway's poignant collection of poetry, I Wandered from New Orleans, speaks to the heart. If you've ever been to NOLA, her words will ferry you back - the sights, smells and the people. If you've never been, you'll want to go. But this collection isn't entirely focused on New Orleans. Conway's poems also reflect on self and identity. The book is truly a gumbo of different, yet closely related ideas - music, dreams, relationships, freedom and loneliness. I really enjoyed these poems.
Charles Lepore
There are authors who have the ability to utilize words. There are poets who possess the gift of rhyme.
Tracy has the ability to capture emotions, filter them through her unique experiences then to succinctly record them in the shape of a poem...Powerful yet beautiful!!
I pray this book of poems is a huge success...so that Tracy will have proof that dreamers do not die, but inspire.
