Additional Praise:

“… a tone, created by her eye, her use of an angle of vision in which ‘things tilt,’ direction changes, and she as much as we her readers are led on… this sense of ideas and images are projecting planes… Lepson is very smart… She’s at her finest, hardest in her love poems… an interesting sensibility at work here.”
—Martha King, Contact II

“There are often unabashedly beautiful tones of words, rhyme, the works.”
—Robert Creeley
