The Unbeliever

by Lisa Lewis
 
Lisa Lewis's first collection of poems meditates on people in trouble searching for a way out, people whose faith has been tested and found wanting. These poems address with compassion and intensity the wariness of women and men together, the distance between them as they attempt to bridge their destructive failures.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The eyes and voice here could easily be those of a fine fiction writer. Lisa Lewis has a secure touch with narrative, and a prodigal ease with details both gritty and lovely. The result is a collection of extraordinarily powerful poems."
—Henry Taylor, Brittingham Prize Citation
