Visible Bones

Poetry and Art by CB Follett

"Follett's voice is fully human -- accurate and direct -- as she celebrates the ordinary and the natural world."
Ellery Akers, "Knocking on the Earth", Wesleyan Press.

"CB Follett's wit and invention are delicious, and the emotional depth each poem possesses is often breathtaking."
Ruth Daigon, Editor of "Poets On;" author of "Between One Future and the Next," Papier-Mache Press.

"CB Follett is a poet of astonishing breadth who addresses both the life of the body and the life of the spirit. When she tackles universal truths, she expands our understanding of the world."
Susan Terris, "Curved Space," LaJolla Poets Press.

"These extraordinary poems evoke through the natural world the quick pleasures and sudden losses of our children."
Lee Meitzen Grue, Editor, "New Laurel Review;" author, "Goodbye Silver, Silver Cloud" and "In the Sweet Balance of the Flesh," Plain View Press.

". . . it may well prove to be one of the finest poetry collections to emerge this year . . . all ten of the 'Lost Daughter Poems' in the fifth section are not only uncommonly courageous but mind-numbingly sad. "
June Owens
