 Loot by Jenene Ravesloot  

Loot: Stolen Memories & Tales Out of School
By Jenene Ravesloot

Jenene Ravesloot's art has appeared in many forms. In song, in textiles, and in the fabric of her writings…

Her work has appeared in art shows, poetry journals, and jazz clubs. Now, we have a book that is pure Ravesloot – a showcase of her unique voice that will resonate with those who enjoy poetry and impact.

Her writing, as one fan described it, "packs a punch you don't quite see coming."

And now you've been warned. We hope you enjoy this lovely book.

Praise for Jenene Ravesloot's Work

Jenene Ravesloot is a deft chronicler of the grit and grace of our existence. The poems here show real nerve in both senses of the word: feeling and courage.

                    – Miles Harvey
                    author of The Island of Lost Maps (Random House, 2000)
                    and Painter in a Savage Land (Random House, 2008)

I love these poems that give us a glimpse of the beauty and melancholy of a young woman's life. Each piece tells a story that's light and dark, playful and somber at the same time. Ravesloot's moving poems are vivid paintings in hues we've never seen.

                  – Susan Wooldridge
                    author of Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life With Words
                    and Foolsgold: Making Something from Nothing (and Freeing Your Creative Process)

I have often had the honor of hosting Jenene Ravesloot reading her poetry at Coffee Chicago. I think you will be dazzled.

                    – John Starrs
                    author of The Suburban Poems, host of reading at Coffee Chicago
