Roberta Gould is pleased to announce the publication of her new book, Woven Lightning, from Spuyten Duyvil Press.
This fine collection does not stand on any lofty height. The poet asks the passerby just to consider. Her hands are not mere channels for writing but dowsing rods of inspiration. Gould sorts through the sensual debris of life and weaves ephemeral bolts and veins..the storms that are evident internally.
– Robert Milby, Poet Laureate, Ulster County, New York
