A Journal of Disability Poetry and Literature

Volume 8     Issue 3     September 2014

Book Reviews in this Issue

Of the four books reviewed in this issue three of them are poetry. Experimental poet and Eigner scholar Jennifer Bartlett's Autobiography/Autobiography, her most ambitious book to date, is reviewed by Ona Gritz. Similarly, British poet Mark Burnhope, disabilities activist and founder of the group Poets Against ATOS, delivers a multi-layered volume of poetry that builds upon and pushes forward his previous work. Poet Linda Fuchs rounds out the group with a return to her familiar theme of living with mood disorders in Healing Times. The fourth book reviewed brings together the work of artist Sue Ridge and John Davies to describe their work in a public arts project for North Middlesex University Hospital.

In addition to the above selections, readers may want to check out the excerpt from The Uppity Blind Girl Poems by poet Kathi Wolfe in the Excerpts section.

Wordgathering welcomes hearing from writers who are interested in writing book reviews and writers or publishers interested in having a disability-related book reviewed. For the latter, please send a query, briefly describing the book.
