In These Voices

A collection of voice poems, In These Voices, allows us to peek inside the lives of a variety of characters. Levine, through the magic of language, embodies a jilted lover, a worried husband, a young woman, a son, a granddaughter and even a squirrel.


Reviews

Sherri Levine’s poems are full of captivating words and images with just the right amount of sparseness. They are about being a child and being an adult; about romances and heartbreaks; about the parents we remember and who they’ve become; about students and truck drivers and cowboys and squirrels. But ultimately, these poems are all about love.

Thoughtful, lyrical and totally unique, I keep going back for more.
— Thea Constantine, author of Stumptown
Levine’s debut, In These Voices, deals in the charms and quirks of language, the vagaries of love and loss, and the confusions and wonders of life going by. It is a wise, delightful collection.
— Joe Wilkins, author of When We Were Birds,
winner of the 2017 Oregon Book Award in Poetry
From the first, brilliant poem to the last, tender one, In These Voices is a surprising joy ride.
