Reviews
"I highly recommend Arvilla Fee's poignant collection of poems, The Human Side. Fee's book contains five sections dealing with heartbreak, loss, grief, but also resilience. The poems are diverse in style with excellent word choice. The themes are universal, and so everyone can relate to these situations. All readers have dealt with addiction, abuse, or grief in their family. Fee's poems show the reader that they are not alone."
--Eric J. Sterling, professor of English, Auburn University

"I was bowled over by Arvilla Fee's collection of poems. These are gritty, realistic works that pull no punches and are also grounded in moving compassion and sturdy self-respect. They will interest anyone who has ever faced challenges and difficulties--that is, practically everyone. With their clear, colloquial phrasing, vivid imagery, impressive rhythms, touches of comedy, inventive forms, and strikingly memorable endings, these poems are almost literally unforgettable. Highly recommended!"
--Robert C. Evans, professor emeritus of English, Auburn University

"'I comb / through edges / of my heart' writes Arvilla Fee in one riveting moment of her debut collection of poetry, The Human Side. Throughout the collection, her words remain powerful and gripping, lingering with us as they reveal an intimacy with human suffering in all of its rawest forms.​"
--Joyce Kelley, professor of English, Auburn University
