Klare Lanson on Disturbance

Ivy Alvarez uses precisely structured moments in her poetry to amplify fear, zoning in on ideas of control with stark brevity and an impeccably timed manner.

Klare Lanson on Disturbance

Stories told through the eyes of a poet are so very important and Ivy Alvarez has crafted something so dark and strangely beautiful…

Christine Hamm on Mortal

Really fantastic and spare poetic explorations of the body, the other and self.

Philip Crippen on Mortal

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.
