Recently reviewed on Library Thing is Fleda Brown's newest poetry collection No Need of Sympathy (BOA, October 2013). Reviewer Tim Bazzett admits right away that No Need of Sympathy "...keeps me coming back to ponder these poems ... over and over again, and each time they seem to mean a little more." Brown's poetry "reads the way a dream feels ... There are so many wonderfully thoughtful - beautiful - pieces here: a collection of very personal sonnets to her grandchildren ... homages to old family photos ... remembering desperate, deceitful students ... There are close to fifty poems here, and they all are simply wonderful ... Fleda Brown's poems have their own lives. They are pieces from not just her life, but from all of our lives. They are timeless. Highly recommended." Click here to read the full review. Newly printed copies of No Need of Sympathy are now available at the BOA Bookstore.
