Upon the Blue Couch (Book Review)
Laurie's book is written with transparency. She lets you sit with her on her blue couch and read her highs and lows, and see a bit of yourself in her words. Her poem "Fatalities" hit me hard. Two words cancer and alcoholism so painful that spelling them is easier than saying them, but Laurie pours them into verse and lets you feel their (her) agony. This book is brilliantly written and a definite must for your library.
