Try a Little Time Travel.

My lady pal from high school, the aforementioned Natalie of NY Times' article sending fame, has published a new chapbook [a small collection of poems -- I didn't know what it meant either], Try a Little Time Travel!! She is also the author of Pink and Hot Pink Habitat, an amazing collection of poems. Seriously, they are all so good; I have way too many dog-eared to choose a favorite! Natalie has always had a magnificent way with words and her irreverent sense of humor lends an extra edge. You should definitely get them both for your own reading pleasure! It will be worth it, I promise you.

Zachary Schomburg had this to say about my dear, Natalie Lyalin:
"Natalie Lyalin is writing some of the best poems in the world. There is an evil in her gorgeous poem-hearts. She must have sold her heart to the devil to write like this—so beautiful, so funny and so strange. Her images stack and stack down the page without spilling, each line such a bombshell you'll start reading backward to the first line. These poems are like babies—they will pop out of trees."
So you see, it isn't just me who thinks Natalie is the greatest.
