Poetry. "Owen Lewis's poems do us the huge favor of restoring a radical and essential strangeness to the so-called 'everyday.' He is a shaman riding upon the storm-split house, the family tree that wanders through Minsk, Brooklyn, and Jersey, the love-sculpted bedclothes, the parent grown perplexing, and the handwriting of the dead. Nothing that is human is alien to Lewis in these fine poems, which perform again and again the gutsy feat of stealing the graveyard flowers."—Patrick Donnelly

Review:

Owen Lewis s spare, beautifully realized, and humane book of poems dramatizes how we survive our lives, which are sometimes filled with daylight, but also shadowed by dark grief. How rare to discover a first book that is a fully mature work of art. --Edward Hirsch

Owen Lewis s poems do us the huge favor of restoring a radical and essential strangeness to the so-called everyday. He is a shaman riding upon the storm-split house, the family tree that wanders through Minsk, Brooklyn, and Jersey, the love-sculpted bedclothes, the parent grown perplexing, and the handwriting of the dead. Nothing that is human is alien to Lewis in these fine poems, which perform again and again the gutsy feat of stealing the graveyard flowers. --Patrick Donnelly

At any given moment, the poems of Sometimes Full of Daylight straddle the objective and subjective realms of the speaker s world at large. What we hear, taste, see, feel in this book may be of the real or may be of that inner terrain, that reservoir of the drinkable or molten that rises up, up, up from that place we call the psyche. Lewis writes deeply imagined poems, and as wonderfully complex and layered as they can be, they are always accessible to the reader, always navigable, always worth our while to read, always luminous. --Martha Rhodes
