Thanks to the good people at the Midwest Book Review for including a brief review of Give Over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt in their Small Press Bookwatch section:
There is no one more unbiased than the heckler, because he hates everyone equally. Give Over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt is a collection of poetry from Jason Tandon who provides a dry, witty analysis of the world through his verse. Entertaining and insightful, “Give Over the Heckler and Everyone Gets Hurt” is a fine addition to any community library poetry collection.
An educator with a flair for drama, Hayden Saunier brings readers a fine volume of poetry. “Tips for Domestic Travel” is a collection of poetry drawing on her own experiences as a teacher and actress, and gives readers her own unique view of the world through her expert verse. “Tips for Domestic Travel” is a worthy addition to poetry collections. “Small Memory”: My mother is riding a bicycle/for the last time,//turning slow careful circles/around a sandy road//that ends abruptly at the sea./She’s seventy-three.//She lets go the handlebars,/claps twice like a magician,//and waves goodbye to me.
The Midwest Book Review recently ran a very favorable mini-review of The Last Game We Played by Jo Neace Krause. The review was a part of the November, 2009 Small Press Bookwatch.
To view eyes through the life of another is to understand them. The Last Game We Played is a collection of short fiction by Jo Neace Krause, reflected on the lives of others in our lives and in our community. With an Appalachian flavor, The Last Game We Played is an intriguing and highly recommended anthology that short fiction readers will love.
