A Review of Notes from the Column of Memory in the Atticus Review

In Jacob Butlett’s wonderful review of my new book in the Atticus Review, he writes, “Readers will love Drexler’s polished craft choices,” and “Everyone should read Notes from the Column of Memory, especially those who appreciate poems with sensory-filled images and dramatic, personal pathos.” It’s gratifying when a reader gleans a truth a poem holds, one that I would not have been able to articulate: “Drexler ends the book on a remarkable note, indirectly inviting readers  . . . not to discount sorrow, a feeling that can precede personal growth.” Yes, and thanks to Jacob Butlett for extending this poem’s insight in a beautiful way.
