Lisa Cheby’s first chapbook, Love Lessons from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is now available through Dancing Girl Press, as well as directly from Lisa at readings (see the events page), and in local independent bookstores (list forthcoming).
“Propelled by scraps of know-how from the contemporary heroine Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lisa Cheby’s debut chapbook of poems pushes the possibilities of language with syntactical play and gutsy moves while she sifts through her own lost loves. ‘I tried to send you a smoke signal/but my blanket burst into flames,’ she laments in one poem but she keeps up with the challenges, even slaying if she needs to, ‘just watch/as I break the laws of existence.'” Love Lessons from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an up-to-the minute primer aiding us in the search for both the spirited and dark parts of ourselves while guiding us toward strength and transformation. ” — Molly Bendall
