“The geography of Anmarie Soucie's excellently sensitive book of poems contains the names of virtually every drug used by this monstrously decadent system to murder young people, but her lyrical and narrative sophistication defies and ultimately triumphs over the rotten diseases of capitalism.”

~ Jack Hirschmann, emeritus Poet Laureate of San Francisco

"A piercing collection forged in remarkably stark compassion."

~ Amiel Courtin-Wilson, poet and filmmaker, Flood Projects

 “Whether exploring the streets of New York or the wild suburbs of Nebraska, Soucie’s poems leap from the page to reveal with startling intimacy moments of hope and heartbreak, beauty and loss. Combining dark humor, wit and deft emotion, they are a lyrical guide to the human comedy in the 21st century.”

~ Tony Perrottet, author of Off the Deep End, and The Sinner’s Grand Tour

"In a world chock full of 'me too's' and 'no more's', we need poets like Anmarie Soucie. Her collection -- The Vulnerability of Silence -- is brimming with the anger and mercurial mood that comes from these experiences, yet not without grace, depth, and wonderful insight. Her poems are an introspective reckoning that deals with trauma, relationships, and society, laid down on the page for us to witness, and even, perhaps, to connect with."

~ Alisson M. Wood, founder of Pigeon Pages
