Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
In the old story of love and loss, Lisa Ampleman's I've Been Collecting
This to Tell You
cuts to the core of the matter with concision and subtlety. Hearts are laid bare, dissected, even grown anew. Masterfully structured and alert to the most vital details, this collection has lots to tell us and a voice at once authentic and lyrical with which to do it. Don Bogen

In these poems, the beloved is a space the speaker moves through at first with trepidation, then with gathering force emerging finally into a hard-won world ravishing in its clarity under a brutally beautiful sky pinking up/like a newly healed limb. The poems of Lisa Ampleman's collection don t flinch, and the reward of their acute seeing is a song that s sustenance itself. Kerri Webster

Lisa Ampleman's subtle and beautifully-wrought poems make way for the possibility that all is not frenzy in this agitated world. Although we might be the walking wounded, and like Thomas need scars to believe, the poems assure us that we heal, that wholeness and grace await us. Eric Pankey

A prairie is plain, they say those who have not stood in one. And so, too, is an ordinary heartbreak, until Lisa Ampleman begins to unfold it in these closely observed and quietly surprising poems. Salvation doesn't live here, but there's plenty to salvage in the wry, self-effacing metaphors by which she harvests what wisdom experience yields. Susan Tichy
