"Distinguished poetic insights, distinguished poetic textures, genuine richness."
--Duane Locke, Author of seventeen books of poetry including Squid's Dark Ink and Watching Wisteria
"Fresh, cutting edge, deeply personal, Zaran's work speaks to the heart. A great read!"
--Scott C. Holstad, Author of Cells and Artifacts
"These poems-vast in scope-deal with love, loss, pain and laughs; in short, life. Lisa Zaran's work is intensely personal
and refreshingly, disarmingly brutal in its self effacing honesty. Like all of us, Lisa Zaran is protean, her poems varying
with her humor and moods. We can all get something from these unpretentious vignettes of one woman's life."
--rob walker, South Australian poet, songwriter and co-founder of
"A word, a phrase, a rhyme; this 'sometimes girl' has the right thing to say for all times. Lisa's warm poetry has a unique
way of making the reader feel as though the words they are reading are emanating from their own heart. A true gift."
--Fred Wheeler, Editor, Indie Journal
"Lisa Zaran's new collection, 'the sometimes girl', is an emotive dance into an erstwhile forbidden hall of concrete particulars
where as Lisa writes, "...sometimes..i have rhythm and the blues", a place of enraged and submissive dichotomy. Lisa is no
neo-naive and brutally honest with us, allowing us infinite access to the core of her existence while avoiding the insincere
academic verbage and disjunctive imagery that most of today's poets attempt to use. She is a terrifying joy to read."
