Poetry. ALL IN ALL, by Laura Chester, is the second in Quale Press's edition key satch(el) quarterly series of chapbooks of prose poetry. ALL IN ALL is a collection of prose poem memoirs of growing up on a Midwest lakeside combined with period photographs. Recalling a "past that can't crumble," the prose poems and images create a haunting collage of a childhood and the memories "that they stir up...recollections of other incantations."
