“In Conversations with Gravel, Sarah Thursday dissects love affairs gone wrong with surgical precision. These remarkable poems spare no one. Thursday and her lovers each bear the responsibility and the sorrow. How to win while losing at love? With exquisite imagery and unflinching honesty, these poems show us how.” —Alexis Rhone Fancher, poetry editor, Cultural Weekly

“Sarah Thursday’s Conversations with Gravel are also conversations with conflict (‘you want me bath-soaked, / I need you tree-hollow’), grief, eroticism, self-discovery and courage (‘Keep kicking through splintered wood and twisted metal’). Her voice is fluid, honest, not afraid of vulnerability, not afraid of showing her strength: ‘my name is not prey'”. — Mariano Zaro, Author of Tres Letras and The House at Mae Rim

“The poems in Sarah Thursday’s Conversations with Gravel do not spare our feelings or soften the hammer-blows to the heart of love gone wrong. Sit back, take a deep breath, read. Such poetry allows us to grieve and rejoice together, making the world a more hospitable, less fearsome place.” —Donna Hilbert, Author of Gravity: New and Selected Poems
