Lisa Panepinto’s remarkable poetry collection ON THIS BORROWED BIKE (ISBN: 978-09895125-3-4, Three Rooms Press, 2014) received an insightful and rave review in the April 2014 issue of the gorgeous UK literary journal Bare Fiction Magazine (April 2014 issue)
Reviewer Adam Horvitz writes:
“Panepinto plummets through landscapes, riding the borrowed bicycle of the title poem and flying ‘steadily without looking / lifting like a crow,’ political and spiritual by turn, and at her best when looking hard at the people she encounters. . . . The book feeds from a surrealist version of the blues, draws evocative pictures of sleeping in cars, of Panepinto’s native Spokane (‘in night streets a car rode behind us slow / a girl rolled down the window / yelled meth meth meth’) and of drunken women in need of a helping hand home, but always comes back to nature. . . The connections she makes, the images she pinpoints from far above like a crow seeking nourishment flower into unexpected intricacies that filter through the book.”
