Praise for Connie K Walle's What's Left
"In potent poems almost as short as the poet, Connie K Walle covers death, love and the passing tides of time. What's Left also offers a candid look back at sex in the midcentury that's as volcanic as 'the shift of the/ tectonic plates.' This poet has a sparkly wit and penchant for O'Henry endings to keep her readers in suspense."
--Allen Braden, author of A Wreath of Down and Drops of Blood
"What's Left, is full of humor, pathos, compassion and wisdom. Be prepared for the small gasp of surprise you will utter at the end of poems that you first thought of as simple. She meets head-on the many lessons of love--love unrequited, love passionate, love worth the pain, love not worth the pain, love passing through, love lasting a ifetime. With equal courage and verve, she faces the specter of death, while greeting life with a high-five. This book is a good read for a cozy night when you want to wrap yourself in a warm blanket of humanity."
--Glenna Cook, author of Thresholds
