Deborah Brown Opens Doors

Cutbank Literary Magazine recently reviewed Deborah Brown's Poulin Prize winning book Walking the Dog's Shadow.  Reviewer Mike Walker praises the strength of Brown's poems stating, "They stand up - they have a feeling of age and gravity to them, of footing secure and robust."  He writes that her work, centered around truth, is both intimate and powerful.  Recalling memories of old high school english teachers who taught that poetry opens doors to new worlds, Walker says, "Deborah Brown makes good on that promise.  She really does open those doors, the doors to the life of a middle-aged woman who connects with family near and far through her words, the doors of physical places in her memory, the doors of depths into the world the news and Internet share out only as postage-stamp or paint-chip sized postcards of its actual self."
