Thank you to Rain Taxi Magazine and Gale Hemmann for their cordial and eloquent review of Alexis Sear’s poetry collection, Out of Order, winner of the 2021 Donald Justice Poetry Prize. Hemmann unveils and explores this collection expressing that the book “helps inspire a refreshingly cohesive narrative in which we can find bits of ourselves.”
Out of Order takes apart a poet’s memory and re-assembles it for us, much like a mixtape from the era of her childhood. Strung along a ribbon of formal poetry, the honest reflections here give rise to a melody of themes.
