Reviews

"There is no shelter from the blows of fate in Amy Fleury's American heartland. Yet the inhabitants of her poems respond to suffering with quiet dignity and an abiding faith in the interconnectedness of all living things. It has been a long time since a book moved me as deeply as this one. These are not just beautifully wrought poems; this is one of those rare works that can renew the weary human soul."--Julie Kane, Louisiana Poet Laureate and author of "Jazz Funeral "and "Rhythm & Booze""At a time in American poetry when enigma sometimes seems to substitute for emotion and 'difficulty' for content, there are still poets who can seize you by the senses and not only show you new wonders but make you feel you're remembering them. "Sympathetic Magic" is further evidence that Amy Fleury belongs in that select circle."--William Trowbridge, Missouri Poet Laureate and author of "Ship of Fool"Praise for earlier work"The minute I finished "Beautiful Trouble", I wished I had copies to give to all my friends: to the poets, of course, who will admire it for its art, but also to those who don't read poetry. Fleury proves that a book of poems need not be baffling or condescending or self-absorbed. With ordinary words placed with perfect precision, this book throws open dozens of windows onto fresh new ways of seeing, and loving, the world."--Ted Kooser, former U.S. Poet Laureate
