Two Collections From Jane Blanchard

As well as longstanding Lighten Up Online contributor Jane Blanchard’s fifth Kelsay collection Never Enough Already (14 August 2021)  there is now her sixth, the recently published Sooner Or Later (21 June 2022). Both collections of sixty or so pieces feature several that first appeared in LUPO as well as many other venues, from The Anglican Theological Review to The Dark Horse.

Her work is neatly-crafted and varied in form, focusing on the daily round, relationships, family, gardens, food, social conventions, and a certain number of more sombre topics, but laced with much wry wit regarding raccoons, royals, crickets, rampageous crustaceans, bears and beards, not to mention George Washington and Windows 10.
