Delicious. In Break Up Hair, Grace Richards gives us a scrumptious collection of verse that is at times sweet, savory, tangy, piquant, bitter, hearty and, oh my, even spicy. The 23 poems each offer unique reflections through many angles of light: reflective, refracted, prismed. A full cornucopia of emotive cuisine served warm on a literary salver. Bon Appétit.
—Theo Czuk, novelist & songsmith
What becomes of a woman unloved? In Grace Richards’ marvelous chapbook, Break-Up Hair, the woman blossoms. These poems, strewn with rose petals, orchids, lilies, and lavender, both delighted and inspired me. As the poet enjoins the reader in the powerful final poem, “The Poet’s Way” Lift your fledgling wings and give voice/ to the verses, billowing in airy, sinuous designs/ like starlings in murmuration.
—Alexis Rhone Fancher, poetry editor, Cultural Daily
