Winter of Summers Reviews

    I’ve read all of Michael Faudet’s poetry books and he continues to be one of my favorite poets.

    This is his fourth book of poetry and I love seeing how he has grown and developed as a poet. His first book, Dirty Pretty Things, was strictly romantic. This book, on the other hand, was still focused on romance and love, but he would drop in a poem every now and then that focused on social issues. For example, “Respect” was all about treating women with respect and “Trigger Warning” was about how we

    This is his fourth book of poetry and I love seeing how he has grown and developed as a poet. His first book, Dirty Pretty Things, was strictly romantic. This book, on the other hand, was still focused on romance and love, but he would drop in a poem every now and then that focused on social issues. For example, “Respect” was all about treating women with respect and “Trigger Warning” was about how we value guns more than the lives of people. Those poems were a nice surprise. There was also a touch of self-awareness to that I found very clever.

    Out of all of his books, this one had the strongest prose pieces. Typically, I’m a bit indifferent to his prose; they never really leave a big impression on me. However, the ones in this book really impressed me. “The Wedding Present” and “Winter of Summers” were two of my favorites. I hope he writes a novel sometime in the future because I think he cultivated his prose into something special.

    Overall, this was another strong collection from Faudet that was both romantic and smart.

    This is, so far, the best one he has written. It's packed full of anger and sadness and lust, and the words in there break.through even the toughest of ice a person can grow on themselves. Once again, Mr. Faudet, you never fail to make my heart pound and my mind stutter.

    Probably my favorite Michael Faudet book right now. So many pieces hit home for me.

  • Ashlie Caster

    One of his best. Beautiful and full of emotion.

  • Alyssa

    The short stories and one liners are everything in this book and i hope he continues that more

    Winter of Summers is the latest collection by Faudet. It's probably my least favorite of the four. Only because I didn't find as many pieces that I marked for rereading. Also, there were more short story pieces than usual, which I don't enjoy as much as the poems. So that may have contributed to my somewhat lowered opinion of the collection. That isn't to say there weren't some examples of beautiful writing, there just seemed to be a smaller number of memorable pieces than I've found in the past

    Winter of Summers is the latest collection by Faudet. It's probably my least favorite of the four. Only because I didn't find as many pieces that I marked for rereading. Also, there were more short story pieces than usual, which I don't enjoy as much as the poems. So that may have contributed to my somewhat lowered opinion of the collection. That isn't to say there weren't some examples of beautiful writing, there just seemed to be a smaller number of memorable pieces than I've found in the past three collections. Maybe they are becoming repetitive now, four books in.

    I do believe a fresh reader would enjoy this collection more than veteran readers, only because the novelty in Faudet's romantic and sexual writing has ebbed over time. It's still worth the time to read it and enjoy his writing. I noticed there were more uplifting poems about love than in previous collections, so that may be good news for some. I'd still recommend this to readers of modern poetry and established fans of Michael Faudet.

    I love Michael Faudet, and I only wish to see his work getting better. The book had repetitive themes like this last few books, and honestly, it just made me miss his first book all the more.
