About Trace Elements:

"Lamothe's Trace Elements is an extraordinary debut. These poems turn on images both astonishing and enlightening; and it's clear the mind behind them is intelligent, sophisticated, and complex. I really love this new voice! It arises from the kind of making that sticks, that enters readers and changes them. Listen, Lamothe's the real thing: when she sings her sweetest, she is ruthless."
—Renee Ashley

"Lori Lamothe's newest collection, Trace Elements, pokes, prods, smooches, hugs and pinches the reader with well-crafted surrealistic and manic energy, in a unique and honestly profound accessible way. Throughout Trace Elements Lamothe's deft hand not only dissects reality with concise imagery but paints a beautiful portrait of what it means to be human, and the unshakable strength that comes with experience and insight."
—Ariana D. Den Bleyker

"Lori Lamothe gives us glimpses, snapshots that flow, reveal and sometimes even shock. "
—Leah Maines
