About Everyone I Love Is a Stranger to Someone:

"The instability of life, its aching craziness, is not usually met with the poise these poems show. Vulnerable yet full of spunk, Everyone I Love is a Stranger to Someone is startlingly delightful -- or is that delightfully startling? Either way, reader, prepare yourself for a new, strange joy."
—Dean Young

"Annelyse Gelman is an extraordinary poet who is able to tear language and sense apart and deftly put it back together in her very own way. Sometimes the result is as subtle as a soft kiss to an orchid, other times everything is blown to bits by the expert loft of a hand grenade. Across her amazing range, she will demand of you the same humour, intensity and intelligence. Keep this collection safe; once you have got into her voice, you won't want poetry to be quite the same again."
—Jodie Dalgleish
