The Poetry Book Society Bulletin on Linda Lamus's A Crater the Size of Calcutta (Mulfran, 2015)

"Published posthumously following her death from cancer in 2008, Linda Lamus' debut collection affords us an all-too ephemeral glimpse of a nascent talent tragically lost to us. Edited by Carrie Etter and with a foreword by Tim Liardet, these are intricately crafted poems, distilled impressions of her world travels in crystalline snapshots of people and places which linger long in the memory. It is down to the sterling work of Carrie Etter and Mulfran Press that we can hear Lamus' startling voice: 'Look. I am the shadow watching from the stars.'"
