Stories told through the eyes of a poet are so very important and Ivy Alvarez has crafted something so dark and strangely beautiful…
Really fantastic and spare poetic explorations of the body, the other and self.
This is a magical book. Whether it’s a story or a book of poems changes with each reading. Highly recommended!
Mortal satisfies a maternal affection for those hard-to-find words, which tenderly express the labor and ache of mother/daughter relationships.
I didn’t just read this book: I carefully and fervently nestled in it.
