Kinds of Snow
Direct, unvarnished, luminous—a kind of gratitude shot through the work for the beauty of the place, . . . a lexicon of snow, sing with notes of grief, sorrow, joy and resilience. —Spencer Reece, author of The Clerk’s Tale and Road to Emmaus
Smallen writes with resonant clarity . . . work that beautifully marries attention and evanescence. —Alison Hawthorne Deming, author of Stairway to Heaven and Death Valley, Painted Light
Published by Green Writers Press. Ask at your local independent bookstore – if they don’t have Kinds of Snow in stock, they can get it for you via Ingrams, Baker & Taylor, and Midwest Trade Point – just ask! Also available at Magers and Quinn and amazon.com.
You This Close – Red Dragonfly Press
Su Smallen has mastered the language of suggestion, intricately weaving endings with beginnings, longing with resonance as she proceeds with “wild caution.” – Joyce Sutphen, Minnesota Poet Laureate, author of The Green House
Buddha befriends Barbie, shops at Target, rides roller coasters, considers a career change, and contemplates the complete perfection of toast. Buddha, Proof honors the center, not-center of Buddhism with humor and gravity.
“Su Smallen writes with eccentric grace and clarity. Buddha, Proof offers readers compelling collisions between Smallen’s re-imagined Buddha for our time (for all time) and a vast array of characters, landscapes, and philosophical bewilderments.” – Deborah Keenan
