Thank you to poet Fazeela Jiwa for her review and interview about my book in Montreal’s Matrix Magazine.
From Fazeela’s review: “It would seem fitting to describe these iterations as Russian dolls, except that analogy implies that each version looks like the original, only smaller. Instead, Leslie’s distillation and rearrangement of the original words opens new worlds within the same story. Subsequent versions may be smaller but despite this, the startling re-combinations of words and phrases explore the creases of the first iteration.”
Creases. I love that.

Thank you Fazeela!
