Pedlar Press, September 2011

From Pedlar Press:

In minimal and carefully chosen language, Ridley mesmerizes. Each poem pays heed to the senses. When necessary, Ridley troubles syntax , but not in a heavy-handed way. Lines are built and broken, based on rhythm, image, sound. Ridley gives us mood, tone and exquisite detail enough to allow us to be compelled by her characters, but she hasn’t gone overboard. She’s given us spaces to fill in for ourselves.
