Praise for Flume Books

“In twentieth-century poetry, discerning readers have always paid close attention to chapbooks, for it is often in the pages of those concentrated volumes that one finds the true work, the harbinger of great things to come. So it is with Lynne Kuderko’s The Corner of Absence.”

–Robert McDowell

In The One Blue Thread, Naomi Chase gives us Gittel, a character so lively, so rambunctious, so splendid in her reasoning, the poems in this chapbook also read as a novel-in-verse. Chase’s on-target wit and verbal agility do more than challenge religious iconography. These poems transform a tender and vulnerable human emotion and lift them into the political. A completely engaging series of poems!

–Denise Duhamel

“I have long regarded David Graham as on of the most moving and able poets of his generation. In Stutter Monk, his best work to date, he proves his mastery and soul again.”

–Sydney Lea

“The natural world was not named and ordered by Adam, rather it names us daily, as Uschuk proves in these fine-crafted poems.”

–Joy Harjo

“In Joann Allred’s poems, the air hums with lives which serve as the poet’s ‘whetstone to sharpen vision.’…I admire the range and complexity of the poems, their textured language, the feel and sound of them in my mouth and my inner ear.”

–Carole Simmons Oles

“Ava Leavell Haymon’s work, redolent of tropical gold leaf and flesh, is the Baptist projection of St. Theresa’s passions into contemporary America. Her fruits of spirit and flesh are exquisitely halved on the communication/collection plate. Go ahead, eat them. I mean it.”

–Andrei Codrescu

“Vertreace’s  work is rich with subtleties, careful imagery, agreeable varieties of music. It is obvious that she is committed to her positives, and will say nothing that she does not feel. She is a steadily growing artist, with an impressive future.”

–Gwendolyn Brooks
