Not Even Close To What She Planned On

“Sandy Gingras is perhaps the most delightful poet I know who isn’t yet famous. This book is perhaps the book that will spring her into the maybe world of recognition. I’ve known her and her work for over twenty years. Perhaps, I thought, she couldn’t get any better. She has. No maybes about it. You’ll need to read the book in order to understand the nature of my praise.”
