Lauren Hilger's debut is a masterful expose of filmic proportions. In each poem is a film beckoning to be viewed, emotional resonance pulling you in for a full embrace. Lady Be Good is a delight and declares Hilger as an important voice in contemporary poetry.
"The reader can revel as much in the richness of the lines themselves as in the images they create. There’s a certain timelessness to the collection, or at least a sense of history, as Hilger examines women from Leda to Lauren Bacall."
Rachel Wooley,"Playing the Role of the Woman: A Review of Lady Be Good" in Atticus Review
