Two Reviews of Life-List

Linda Russo on Life-List‘s “fierce sense of attentiveness” over at Jacket 2 as part of her beautiful series of critical essays on ecopoetics.

And on his blog, rob mclennan writes:

Part of what is remarkable about Smith’s work is her use of fragment and space, allowing the poems such a breadth of multiple readings and meanings, even while allowing a strong intuitive narrative grounding. There is something lovely and deceptively light in the way her poems accumulate so subtly into such hefty, serious weight, pinging across the margins of the book in ways that deserve as much to be heard aloud as experienced upon the page.

Life-List is available through Small Press Distribution and Chax Press. More information here.
