First book of 108 contemporary poetry authored by Alice Shapiro is receiving rave reviews in the literary world.
Some review examples are:

B. L. Pawelek.
Alice Shapiro's poems in "Cracked" explore the complex relationships we have as humans to one another, and to the world. With strong images and gripping words, the poems in this book compel us to look at the ordinary and the extraordinary in our own lives. The eloquent use of metaphor in each poem leaves the reader wanting more, turning the page, to find wonderful creativity and surprises in language. The poetry in this collection, does indeed, bring the reader to examine the cracks of our inner and outer worlds. With precision and imagery, the poet finds the waiting spaces inside each of us.
Connie Post Livermore Poet Laureate
