Reviews
"Lapis is apocalyptic: an unveiling of revelations made in the wake of great loss. With hardship-honed feminist wit and transmundane wisdom, Webster speaks to us sibylline from the end of things. Her poems seethe with energy unleashed by visionary experience, their images shaking with violent insight."--Brian Teare, author Doomstead Days

"Lapis's nuanced journey is full of beauty and devastation. Webster recreates a wholly unique providence, "this waking, light striping the walls to which bees are pinned," a voice from the page, still 'beating its wings'."--Elena Karina Byrne, author of If This Makes You Nervous
