NEW Review of Stick Up by Paul David Adkins (Blood Pudding Press)

Thank you to Galatea Resurrects and to M. Earl Smith for this new review of the Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook "Stick Up" by Paul David Adkins!
"The story that Adkins portrays is gritty: a down-on-her-luck woman...finally snaps. What follows is the intersection of several lives, all caught in a moment of drama not, for the most part, of their making. Through this series of poems, we see how the themes of religion (If God wanted to / save her, now was His chance / to give her / one hundred / thousand signs), addiction, and poverty are brought to the forefront...The poems in Stick Up are so gritty, so personal, and so real that one can fairly assume that Adkins is writing from some sort of personal experience."
