Andrea Gibson does not just show up to pluck your heart strings, she sticks around to tune them. If being floored is new to you, ya might wanna grab a cushion. Beware the highway in her grace and the crowbar in her verse. -Buddy Wakefield, "Live for a Living"
To call her one of the best poets would be a gross understatement. Her words cut so sharply and completely they cannot be shaken. She is a rare artist who forever changes those who experience her poems." -Carlos Andres Gomez, HBO Def-Poet/co-star Spike Lee's Inside Man

There are also three (I think) very short quotable poems that you can use to prove to friends how good a poet she is during casual conversation.
One poem has had its ending changed, ('When The Bough Breaks') but you can find the other version (which I prefer) on Youtube by searching 'Andrea Gibson at Da Poetry Lounge'. All of her performances are brilliant as she is a performance poet, though the lack of a performance detracts only minimally from the book.
(Amazon recommends Laura Marling as similar and though I would not have connected them immediately I will agree to the 'If you like this you will probably like this too' mentality of the two. Also Patrick Wolf has a similar emotive quality.)
Just by reading the first couple of pages you can tell that it is a book worth buying.
Read the whole thing in a day, but i'd still go through the book when i feel i need some inspiration and clarity.
