Lisella's AMORE Reviewed in FRA NOI & Interview w/ Fagiani Archived on LiveStream

Fred Gardaphe's review of  Maria Lisella's Amore on Hope Street (Finishing Line Press, 2009) in the February 2011 of Fra Noi ("Books & Beyond") is reprinted below:


Over two dozen poetic gems come in sections on immigrant similarities and clashes, the family here and gone, and travels abroad and inside relationships in Maria Lisella’s Amore on Hope St.. Lisella excels at both lyric and narrative forms, bringing the real to the surface through things like a young girl’s pierced ears, and sometimes through the surreality of a Venetian fog. Through her skills at framing her subjects, she makes the past seem present and the present seem past, creating poetry you want to read and reread. ($14 paperback) http://www.finishinglinepress.com/  ISBN: 978-1-59924-533-1.
