J. D. Graham has written a discerning and exciting review of Calling the Garden from the Grave, in which he says:
“Calling the Garden from the Grave, Lesley Clinton’s new chapbook (available here from Finishing Line Press, $14.99), is a collection of well-balanced tensions — rooted in place, yet unafraid to travel; modern in tone, yet grounded in tradition. Clinton has crafted these poems with care. The result is a chapbook deserving of careful readers.”
Read the entire review here, and let Graham “sketch the territory, point out some landmarks, and mark the elevation” of the collection, which he describes as a “generous and compelling work.”
