Chicks Up Front

“Sara Holbrook continually works miracles by giving substance to steam—in these keepsake poems she is matriarch, mojo, and mind-bender, guiding us toward insight with an unerring hindsight. It is not important whether you discover Sara through her electrifying performance work or through these gems of humor, heart and lyricism. What’s important is that you discover her, this wondrous wordsmith, one of the reasons poetry has a pulse again.” –Patricia Smith
