“I love the rich imagery and sensory journey of Lisa Brunette’s latest collection, BROOM OF ANGER. I’m with her on the railroad tracks, at the baseball game, and in the bedrooms of these lovely poems—her strong female voice, a conversation with her past and present, all the characters gathered ‘round. Above all, she’s got the poet’s eye: 'If I’d been staring at the ground/ I would’ve missed it.'"
