Fjords Review calls REVISING THE STORM 'striking, refreshing'

RevisingTheStorm_Bookstore Geffrey Davis' Revising the Storm recently received high praises from Fjords Review. Reviewer LynleyShimat Lys offers a thoughtful and meditative approach to the winner of the 2013 A. Poulin, Jr. Poetry Prize. "What is most striking about the poems, individually and as a group, is their ability to maintain calm in the constant flux of the stormy weather they and their narrators inhabit. Davis takes us through the liminal spaces between experience and memory, compels us to listen as stories unfold, and reminds us to be mindful of silence and breath as landscapes spin out of control." The review continues, "through his positioning of the narrators and his use of pause, breath, and silence, he is able to give us the full impact of these stories in a way that lets the stories speak for themselves and make themselves heard . . . these poems hover in liminal spaces to teach us anew about living, listening, and the tenor of silence."
