Poet extraordinaire recently sent us some thoughts on Suzi Kaplan Olmsted’s newest release, Elektra’s Mouth:
“Tortured by too many gifts to serve each well, Suzi Kaplan decided, to our great benefit, to pour what she knows of this impossible life into the very heart of story. Also, in a time when almost everyone lies, she has decided to tell the truth, in poetry, no less. And so, this book and the ones that will follow. I have been fortunate to have known her so many years and to stand by her as we are all so honored to do. ”
