A NEW Review of Fiddle Is Flood by Lauren Gordon

"vivid and visceral. The lines in these poems are short, spare. Each image is sharp and singular... and each poem pushes against our need for story as well as for sense. We read of the pull of the physical, and much is left to be discerned between the lines."
from a new Book Review of the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook "Fiddle Is Flood" by Lauren Gordon, reviewed at Extract(s) Daily dose of lit

New Review of Sister, Blood and Bone by Paula Cary

A new review written last week about the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Sister, Blood and Bone" by Paula Cary (Blood Pudding Press 2013) - http://alt-current.blogspot.com/2015/04/thevolt74.html
Thank you to The Spark:Alternating Current Blog, The Volt and reviewer Julia Hy.
I like how it says at the bottom of the review - "This book was purchased at AWP by an Alternating Current staffer who visited the press’ table. The reviewer does not know the author or publisher and received the book from Alternating Current at random".
So someone randomly chose a Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook at the Blood Pudding Press AWP table and then reviewed it. Neat. 

And if you would like to procure a copy of this chapbook for yourself, here it is - https://www.etsy.com/listing/150775648/sister-blood-and-bone-by-paula-cary-2013?ref=shop_home_active_3

It offers four teaser pieces from the NEW Blood Pudding Press Press poetry chapbook, "Fiddle Is Flood" by Lauren Gordon, followed by new poetry from Davide NixonJohn Claude SmithJoe Milford, Bekah Steimel, (and a few older poems by Jessica Lindsley and Martin Willitts Jr. have moved from the top of the flock to the bottom of the flock, but still live on)!


"silver fishes and all that swim in the darkness - inside my belly - up and over my other bones - cutting my body in half - bared fangs tearing into hope - gyrate & spill give voice to swill - in the black soil of night - a glimmer of hopelessness - in heaven blood up to your ankles"
