Poetry has long been the language of rage. The disquiet ghosts of our own discomfort and paralyzing fear rising up in sometimes-broken verse to express itself in bellowed whispers. Splatterpunk nominee Susan Snyder’s debut chapbook of poetry ‘Broken Nails’ is no exception to this, each poem overflowing with the emotional outpourings of a woman who has too often been told to paint herself in the veneer of societal femininity only to be beaten down and left with chipped paint and broken nails.
“Broken Nails by Susan Snyder knocked me on my ass. Snyder’s poems are excellent. She delves into some dark places, but you’ll be better for letting her take you through them.”-Ryan Bradley via Goodreads
“Intense, painful poetry that is raw and important.”-John Baltisberger, author of War of Dictates
