Joanne Seltzer

Adirondack Lake Poems

“Joanne Seltzer’s poems draw on the buried history and watery uncertainty of the Adirondack Lakes... a journey through wistful landscapes of the soul.”
--Michigan Alumnus

“ ...small surprises, often ironic, occur at the end of almost every poem, giving a haiku-like feeling.”

“Joanne Seltzer’s new chapbook, Adirondack Lake Poems, constitutes a complex journey through history, geography and modern feminine consciousness. Seltzer interweaves the past with the present, nature with civilization and self with other to paint, in both comic and tragic tones, the interrelatedness of all things.”
