About Some Kind of Shelter:

"Sara Tracey illuminates the lives of the working class and the broken hearted with language 'clipped from hymnals.' The people in her poems know the “small magic” of cheap beer, pickup trucks, and dollar stores. They yearn to flee and to return to landscapes where the 'dirt is made from bones.' These portraits, of course, are also searing self-portraits. Tracey’s empathic gaze earns my trust as a reader. Her soulful command of the line and of the image earns my respect as a poet."
—Eduardo C. Corral
