Praise for VOODOO TROMBONE:

"Sharon Alexander's cascading scales of mind make Voodoo Trombone a tremendous debut collection of wild, clear poems examining love, sex, grief, and time through a startling command of imagery and memorable lines such as 'I slept in a galaxy of winters,' and 'Before I became young again, I loaded my pockets with stones.' The marks made of her speakers' anguish and joy create a blueprint we can follow to the kinds of understanding they attain, the paradoxes, such as 'In the cell of night you long/for sleep in the safety of/ the executioner’s arms.'"

- Ed Skoog

"Voodoo Trombone, Sharon Alexander’s chapbook collection of poetry, is a breathtaking debut. These fiercely passionate and precisely crafted poems reveal a consistently powerful, visceral, and highly original poetic imagination. Voodoo Trombone is not recommended for the faint of heart."

- David St. John
