Kathleen Nalley’s poetry grapples with taboo subjects we often do not wish to confront, but should: familial abuse, sexual violence, oppression, and gender, social, and economic inequalities. You can feel a combustible anger bubbling under the surface of her poems, yet her work rails against and reconciles with those forces that seek to destroy the human spirit. Her poetic message, therefore, is ultimately one of unyielding hope.
“Kathleen Nalley writes with the grit of rusted barbed wire, a beauty in the woven line, the points filed needle sharp. Gutterflower is a marvelous collection, a gripping testimonial for a people too often silenced.”
~David Joy, author of The Weight Of This World
