Karen Weiser

"...this book by Karen Weiser seems to understand this as well, that to find the absurdities and exquisitenesses of being alive, we must engage the forgotten scraps and tatters of our past."      ---Ken Walker

"All of poetry’s pathos rises in the gaps and stranded letters of Karen Weiser’s work."  

---Adam Fitzgerald
