Uneven Edges & Pilgrims - Book Reviews

Uneven Edges: Poems - Phoebe Sophocles B-

Publication: 2000
This collection of poems is unsuspecting, deeply personal and surprisingly consistent. These poems will occasionally strike a chord, but promise not to disturb the peace. My favorites include: "Find Me A Child," "Growing Beautiful" and "My Name Means Shining."

Publication: 1997
Pilgrims - Elizabeth Gilbert C+

Pilgrims, Gilbert's first short story collection is a mixed bag. However, I really loved "The Many Things That Denny Brown Did Not Know (Age Fifteen)." That story alone makes the collection worthwhile.
