TWO NEW Blood Pudding Press book reviews!

A new book review written by Lisa Cole about the 2013 Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, "Poking Through the Fabric of the Light that Formed Us: Songs and Stories to Read in the Mirror" by Lora Bloom!

Here’s a piece of the review - Lora Bloom’s new chapbook from Blood Pudding Press, Poking Through the Fabric of Light That Formed Us: Songs and Stories to Read in the Mirror is not for the faint of heart, or the faint of stomach. This is a place where undigested noodles, burps, projectile nausea, and chunks of eyelids are deemed normal, and things most often deemed beautiful are viewed in a new, less favorable, often ghastly light. This collection is filled with things grotesque and horrific but still captivating. In the poem “Remember,” for example, the sun “heaved its dry spew” and “bloodied itself on the earth’s rocky crags’ and in “Pizza Maker,” moons are “battered” “bloody” and “slaughtered.”

Another new book review written by Lisa Cole about the newest 2013 Blood Pudding Press poetry chapbook, “Sister, Blood and Bone” by Paula Cary!

Here’s a piece of the review - a tribute to a sister, a trip backward in time to a childhood of pinky swears, playgrounds, and childhood games. The sisters partake in a lifelong dialog with nature, examining turtle bones, eggshells and pig meat, or watching as “the minnow’s dance cupped/its body silver shimmering/In the dusk of summer evening.
