Illuminated by the insight and life experience of poet Michelle Meyer, The Book of She brilliantly expresses feelings of hope, love, loss, regret, triumph, rage, humor, and perhaps most importantly those moments that teeter on the precipice of choice.

“The Book of She speaks with many voices, all of them infused with poet Michelle Meyer’s wit, clarity, and compassion. As you meet each new “she” in its pages, you’ll realize that you already know her, or that you want to know her, or you’ll recognize her as a part of yourself. A big-hearted beauty of a collection.”
-Jacqueline West, New York Times bestselling author and award-winning poet

“Michelle Meyer hones the sharp edges of her observations about the human condition with a pleasing wit.”
-Lu Lippold, editor, producer


“Poems come out of wonder, not out of knowing.”
