Wake Deskins

Laura Madeline Wiseman’s Wakerecall the moment when we might enter the world, begin to see differently, maybe want to take everything on, no longer naïve, a sad yet awakening moment in life, but not without humor. Such is this collection, as with Wiseman’s others, a page-turning ride of abstract and real, calling to the shifting reality and surreality of contemporary life, and also, with subtle feminist undertones, encouraging the reader to take action in their own life.
