Pascale Petit’s WHAT THE WATER GAVE ME is a “masterpiece”

Grady Harp gives Pascale Petit’s poetry collection What the Water Gave Me: Poems After Frida Kahlo five stars, writing that she  “ties these exquisite poems of the responses to Kahlo’s paintings and life experiences together with a slow extended and unfolding poem in seven parts of incidental reactions to the painting that serves as the cover and the title of this book. She does not miss a beat in the extraordinary life of this important iconic painter. This is poetry of a mature artist, informed not only by her research into the life of her subject and her own background as a visual artist, but as a poet of great skill in the art of communication.” Click here to read the entire review, and here to buy a copy of this exceptional collection.
