Doris Henderson

“Doris Henderson’s first full-length poetry collection, What Gets Lost, is a work of stunning multiplicity, mingling jubilation and high jinx with a terrible sense of what gets lost, moving between glorying in the world’s beauty and exposing its follies and pitfalls, between reveling in the real and free-falling in a magically surreal realm of dreamand fantasy. What holds it all together i

Doris Henderson's books a sensibility as witty as it is wise, a voice in love with the possibilities of language and metaphor.” –From Antrim House
