Review of “The Sea & Beyond” in “The Centrifugal Eye”

In this issue of The Centrifugal Eye, my poetry chapbook was reviewed by Colleen Powderly–a brilliant job and fascinating analysis (I learned a few things myself about my own work. Can we give a higher compliment to a reviewer?). The issue is available at Lulu as a paperback or download. See TCE‘s website:

“Laury A. Egan’s new chapbook, The Sea & Beyond, uses extended sonic pleasures to create a fresh, new song about the
sea and a powerful meditation on the unknowable; she fashions showpiece jewels of sound and rhythm which bring me new visions of these two often-treated subjects, and does it without a single reference to diamond-lit surfaces, sapphired depths, or any of the usual images I’ve read.” [more at TCE]

Signed copies of The Sea & Beyond are available by contacting me through my website:
