Cracked Stings of the truthfulness or raw observation. Shapiro adventures through the glimpses of friends, strangers, nature, and the pain of those relationships.
B. L. Pawelek.
Alice Shapiro's poems in "Cracked" explore the complex relationships we have as humans to one another, and to the world. With strong images and gripping words, the poems in this book compel us to look at the ordinary and the extraordinary in our own lives. The eloquent use of metaphor in each poem leaves the reader wanting more, turning the page, to find wonderful creativity and surprises in language. The poetry in this collection, does indeed, bring the reader to examine the cracks of our inner and outer worlds. With precision and imagery, the poet finds the waiting spaces inside each of us.

I have just read the most inspiring and charmingly constructed book of poems that delighted me at every page. From the start the author captured my interest. I found myself turning page after page wanting to read more and more. She generates a feeling of genuine emotion engrossing you with richly drawn and truly memorable words that paint a very vivid picture. Both obviously and metaphorically. Her observation of the ordinary (and sometimes not so ordinary) everyday events that occur in all our lives are portrayed quite eloquently. Everyone will find something to love and identify with in this book of poems. Her philosophical mind enlightens us. A must read of Poetic Luxury and Sheer Entertainment. CathyCI
