There’s a review of The Ogre’s Wife over at ForeWord Reviews. Karen Rigby writes, “The Ogre’s Wife turns the archetypal into subtle points of entry for reflecting on passion. Beneath the glib voices, toughened survivor-mentalities, and pared language, an appealing vulnerability emerges. Here, the storybook comes disconcertingly and achingly close to life.”
Over at the Bicycle Review they’ve selected “The Ogre’s Wife” as poem of the week. The new book will be out in the next day or two, you can order it now.
