The LA Review reviews two RMP authors... their November issue. In her review of Shampoo Horns by Aaron Teel, Stephanie Barbé Hammer writes, "The nested boxes of an empire that lies within the small that lies within the big is the subject of Aaron Teel’s flash fiction collection Shampoo Horns, which focuses on a trailer park in a good-for-nothing town in the sprawling state of Texas." Thanks, Stephanie!

And in her review of Tinderbox Lawn author Carol Guess' latest book, Doll StudiesRenée K. Nicholson writes: "When a book has a source of inspiration, as is the case with Doll Studies: Forensics by Carol Guess, it can be too easy to rely on that inspiration to interpret the poems. Guess used photographs of crime scene dioramas collected into a book, which she credits in her notes at the end of the collection. However, these prose poems transcend her source of inspiration, and the book works on a level beyond the dioramas—one does not have to be familiar with them to understand and be brought into the moment of these pieces."
