    1 thought on “The Haunted Girl

    1. This is a collection of both poetry and short stories, spanning than a decade and covering many different themes and topics I first discovered Lisa as a poet I fell in love with one of the poems in this collection, The Skin Walker s Wife, which is warm and rough and sexy explicitly so and mythic, and oh so beautiful For me, it was a one hit and you re addicted sort of poem Her poems combine the broken bottles and cigarette stubs of life with the ache of loneliness and the heat of desire They of [...]

    2. Boilerplate disclaimer Lisa is a friend of mine, so this may be somewhat biased.That said, I loved this book It s about equally divided, in terms of length, between 21 poems and 5 short stories Poetry is kind of my thing, and I found myself drawn to the vivid and evocative language Lisa uses here Poems like Begging Auspices fuse folklore with a solid grounding in the real world that makes it seem particularly immediate I also really loved the title poem, and Geminids longer poems like we come to [...]

    3. Rough and tumble poems of lust and loss stories about hard choices and heat Bradley s poetry is never shy in its examination of the sharp edges of relationships with both self and other And it is occasionally flat out sexy Her stories crack open the real to show the weirdness around the edges, basking in the heat of South Texas, out of the mouths of characters used to hard times They re not pretty, but they re true.Recommended for those in need of a journey and for those who suspect the heat wav [...]

    4. I ve read one of these stories before, and it was good then and it s good now But even though I don t read that much poetry, I have to admit that in this collection, all the poetry is really great I like the mix of poetry, prose, and poetry blending into prose.I cannot wait for Lisa Bradley s next book.

    5. A TOP SHELF review, originally published in the December 5, 2014 edition of The MonitorThough not a memoir, some of the science fiction, horror and fantasy pieces in Bradley s book have an autobiographical feel, drawing on the author s youth as a Latina in South Texas Certainly the innumerable facets of female identity glitter at the heart of these darkly beautiful treks through otherworldly landscapes of desire and pain, belonging and loneliness, creation and destruction.Standouts for me were N [...]

    6. Wonderfully inventive, sharp perspectives, deeply moving Review forthcoming at Lightspeed in March.

    7. In this inconsistent collection, Bradley weaves alternately beautiful and unsatisfying poems and stories about latinx communities and supernatural beings Some of the content in this book is absolutely entrancing, but some is confusing and or poorly written.Stop reading here if you re not interested in a case by case breakdown, because that s what I m about to provide POEMSI love most of the shorter form poetry in this volume Beautifully crafted phrasing and interesting, speculative concepts make [...]

    8. I had some special favorites from this collection of genre poetry and fiction, but I m saving the details for a longer review for GeekaChicas Here let me just say that it mass me feel things I don t usually feel I recommend it highly with the caveat that it contains some bold, affecting horror that might disturb some sensitive readers, though that s largely the point of horror, to me Wonderful, really.
