Praise

Advance Praise for Stevie Howell’s I left nothing inside on purpose:

“The sense that the world ought to be comprehensible cannot be overcome or out-thought, and so at the irreducible core of everything is a shard of betraying—there is, after all, no ought in nature. Again and again, the poems in Stevie Howell’s I left nothing inside on purpose attempt to provide that ought—’Yr mother worked for the doctor. She was also the doctor’—which is to say, I left nothing inside on purpose is a book of bewildered lament, as only the truest and smartest books are.” —Shane McCrae, author of In the Language of My Captor

“If you mend a broken bowl with a seam of gold then the fracture becomes more precious than the bowl itself. Stevie Howell’s poems are that sort of precious. Stevie’s voice is funny, in a dark, tragic, self-conscious sort of way. Restless, in a wise, far-reaching sort of way. Beautiful, in a broken sort of way. I return to them again and again.” —Nick Flynn, author of My Feelings
