Poetry. ARE YOU SOMEBODY I SHOULD KNOW? by Dell Lemmon is, according to Jason Koo, "one of the most important books of poetry you will ever read." John Yau writes, the poems "are about being alone and getting older and setting out each day. They are about memories, lost friendships, friends who died, and one thing leading to another." By virtue of the poet's honesty and clarity and the "lucid fever" of her observations, you will be inspired to live your life more deeply, to be more aware of every aspect of your life and to treasure every moment of living. Pared down and direct without ever tripping over themselves, the poems are strong rivers pulling you into their currents.
Dell Lemmon's first book, SINGLE WOMAN, was published by Box Turtle Press in 2016 and her second book, ARE YOU SOMEBODY I SHOULD KNOW?, is forthcoming by Box Turtle Press. Her poems have appeared in Brooklyn Poets Anthology, Court Green, Cape Cod Poetry Review, Mudfish, WSQ, Washington Square Review, among other publications. She has twice been nominated for a Pushcart and several times as a finalist in various poetry contests. She also has a BFA in acting and an MA and PhD in Performance Studies. She lives in Brooklyn and sometimes on Cape Cod too.Author City: USA
