Poetry. "The poems in Kate Gale's ECHO LIGHT do what poems should do—they give wings to darkness, shadows and bruises. We find ourselves lost in cornfields and then saved in a desert, a city, unsuspected places. Gale crafts poems that are 'curiously powerful' and offer us 'salvation from boredom.' The stories, the speakers weave myths of intoxication and sensuality, reminding us of 'words you aren't saying.' They roam from earth and snow to sun, stars and sky. ECHO LIGHT 'has invented the world' of poetry that we yearn for—a world full of imagination, music and flight."—Lory Bedikian
