review of Broadax

The wonderful rob mclennan gave a lovely review of Broadax on his blog.  Read it here.   Excerpt: Lawless writes on a variety of subjects, including her relationship with her sister during childhood, a fear of The Incredible Hulk and male rage, and observations on death, lovers and birds. Smart as hell and densely packed, this is easily her strongest work to date, and Lawless’ observations often contain the force of a punch, yet manage to impact without overwhelm. While some of these pieces are as raw as the bone, Lawless writes of rage from an odd distance, recording the details of dark feelings and experiences akin to a journalist embedded with the troops, with one foot on the shore even as the body might be caught up in the ensuing flood.

Publishers Weekly Review

Thanks to Publishers Weekly for reviewing Broadax!  Read here. 😊

Reminder you can buy Broadax at Octopus Books directly or Small Press Distribution.  (It's on Amazon, but I think it benefits the press more $ to purchase from them or SPD.)↸
