book Tangle cover
This brave and personal collection of deeply felt poems should be a welcome addition on any poetry shelf. Many poems confront the darkness in our lives but do so with the palpable poignancy and beauty that is uplifting. Others carry a wry sense of humor whether dealing with birds splattering windshields or an old man stretching ‘i’ in pie “from here/ to Harlan…” Still others simply celebrate the rich heritage of the poet’s Appalachian roots. However, it remains Hansel’s unerring use of memory and detail to redeem explorations of death and loss that stands out as most remarkable. entertaining and insightful, these are regarding poems from a very talented poet. -Marc Harshman, West Virginia Poet Laureate
