I Will Not Kick My Friends by Kathleen Winter


I Will Not Kick My Friends 
Kathleen Winter 
Elixir Press, 2018


The Manhattan Book Review recently featured my review of Kathleen Winter’s latest collection of poetry.

Readers of academic and literary poetry will find Winter’s collection a satisfying challenge, while casual readers will encounter a lively mind pushing them past mere pleasure.
