Here are what other writers are saying about Outposts on the Border of Longing...

 

 

"Roberta Schultz’s Outposts on the Border of Longing, her first book of poems, is written with a poet’s eye, a songwriter’s ear and a raconteur’s nose for a story. Its poems tell the tales of a family’s journey from an urban neighborhood to a comparative rural “wilderness,” a girl’s journey to adulthood and a woman’s journey into poetry. Read it for its insights, its humor, its delight in language. Read it for the sheer joy of finding a poet who has something to say, and knows how to say it."

 

 

 

Pauletta Hansel, author of

 

The Lives We Live in Houses

 

and other books

 

"In this elegiac chapbook, singer/songwriter Roberta Schultz puts aside her guitar and drums in favor of lyrical lines that must make their music on the page, and they do. Here is a very particular place and time rendered spare and vivid--Grant's Lick--where Native American culture meets Wonder Bread and butterscotch pudding. By accumulating just the right quirky details, Schultz gives us a clear portrait  of her rural Kentucky family in the middle of the 20th century, living where It was still possible to walk in true dark and "feel the shape of the path with your feet.'"
