About The Heart That Lies Outside the Body:

"Stephanie Lenox's The Heart That Lies Outside the Body mines the Guinness World Records to take metaphor to a sublime extreme. Her chapbook, peopled with its 'federation of freaks,' is euphoric, generous, gracefully obsessive. There is intense personal depth in all of these poems, which are intimate, skillful, shimmering with complexity and awe."
—Denise Duhamel

"In the margins of our culture—the places where those who seek fame collide with those born into it—Lenox's poems locate what is common among those who are unique. Their voices and the voices of those who knew them populate this small curio, each one offering a lesson, a reminder, of what it means to live outside the lines."
—Charles Jensen
