The Bone-Joiner

Mike Allen
, Shirley Jackson Award-nominated author of UNSEAMING,
and editor of MYTHIC DELIRIUM and CLOCKWORK PHOENIX, writes:

“Shudders of longing and fear reverberate through Sandi Leibowitz's sumptuous
debut collection of poetry.  THE BONE-JOINER swims deep in to the riches of folklore, fairy tale, and myth and returns with haunted eyes, mesmerizing scars and a wry smile....
Come join this bloody, enchanting, protean feast.”
