My book, This Many Miles from Desire, is officially out now. I'm very, very happy---definitely on a high. Thank you, WordTech.
Read about it and/or order here.
Here are some blurb excerpts from some very, very kind writers:
“Lee is a poet of exceptional control and breathtaking grace, who is unafraid to go for the leaps of word and heart. This new poet will keep poetry alive. I've been waiting for this book.”
---Lorna Dee Cervantes, American Book Award winner, author of Drive: The First Quartet: New Poems, 1980-2005
“Here is a collection of wise, heartfelt, honest poems that feel like songs, sad songs you play alone at midnight to remind your soul to live. Bless you, Lee, for this beautiful music.”
---Ishle Yi Park, Poet Laureate of Queens, NY, author of The Temperature of This Water
“This is a poet with enormous talent and a large and generous heart.”
---Corrinne Clegg Hales, author of Separate Escapes
“Lee Herrick's debut collection, This Many Miles from Desire, makes you stop and think about everything you've assumed before. The poems…radiate a lovely sensuality grounded in an earthy, humbling wisdom.”
---Amy Uyematsu, author of Stone Bow Prayer
