“With the roughened beauty of subverted and torqued form Laura Glen Louisgives us her ‘jet jewels,’ this collection of elegies and laments. Hers is a music that flirts with and then—in stanza after stanza—bypasses tradition. In doing so, she proves her own prosodic dictum: ‘For honoring the dead there are no rules.’ Her only rule is that of an evocative, resonant line.”
–Paulann Petersen, author of A Bride of Wild Escape
Poet Laureate of Oregon
