Beautiful writing; a must own
This is poetry that will stay in your mind long after you're done reading it. The imagery is so strong it makes you shiver. A must for aficionados of contemporary poetry. Highly recommended for everyone-even those who don't usually read poetry.
A true modern day masterpiece.
Lee's poetry is raw and visceral- it reaches down into that place that good poetry touches and twists...
