Review

A true poet settles for nothing less than the truth. This is particularly the case in Neela Arnaud’s autobiographical book of 32 short poems, How To Leave. In her first published collection of original poetry, Neela reveals her ability to consistently convey difficult realities in a startingly original manner. By creating subtle landscapes that play off of the emptiness of that which is left unsaid, the reader is invited to play with their own imaginings and perceptions. A powerful work that deserves to be widely read and appreciated.
