Reviews - What do customers think about My Father's Speech?

A Review from a Former Student  Apr 22, 2008

Dear Ms. Cottle,

I recently finished your poetry book My Father's Speech, and I am amazed. I loved it! Your family's deep and powerful history was portrayed beautifully through your wonderful way with words. I really enjoyed the finale, "Digging to China." It felt so dreamy and monumental as a poem, yet, it's separated premise did not detract from the overall telling of your family's story.

My Father's Speech is a book that I really couldn't stop reading. I look forward to your next work very much. I'm using this one for inspiration to write my own poems now! Thank you so much for everything you've done for me.
A welcome new voice in poetry  Jan 22, 2008
I came across this chapbook and literally read it cover to cover in one sitting because I could not put it down. Knowing nothing about coal mining culture before reading this, I was transported into a dark landscape -- geographical and emotional -- that was absolutely gripping. One gets the sense of excavating the past through these poems as Cottle shares family stories through examination of photographs and other objects. But the richest find, in my opinion, is discovering "What I Don't Talk About" late in the collection. Beautifully simple and direct, it hauntingly suggests that just when you think you've dug deep, there's new territory to unearth.

Cottle is truly a welcome new voice in poetry as far as this reader is concerned.
