Bosselaar strikes again! Feb 1, 2002
Laure-Anne Bosselaar, made quite a dent with her first book, THE HOUR BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF, which went into second and third printings. She has followed it up with a second collection of poems every bit as robust and appealing as her first. Bosselaar, a Belgian import writing in American English, is living proof that poetic rigor and heartfelt passion can get along just fine together. Some would argue that the two, in fact, NEED to be together. The fact that she opens her head and heart so compellingly, in a non-native language, is all the more impressive.

What a joy to discover a new poet! This book delights on all levels. Her poetry is intelligent, sensual, practical and mystical. These treasures will bring many "aha" moments and this is one to keep in the car to refresh you throughout the day. She lives the same life we all live, but hers is deeply infused with poetics. Read this book and your days will be, too.
