"Biting, smashing, often comic rhymes by a poet not afraid to bite." -Maurice Kenny, International Poet and author of many books, including Carving Hawk: New and Selected Poems 1956-2000, White Pine Press, 2002. "Liz Purcell's book of poetry When You Come wanders along a calm and steady path-at times light, free, and airy, at other times dense, dark, and ominous-but always accessible. She is able to be both disturbing and reassuring, addressing serious personal and social themes with empathy and humor." -Peter Keat, owner of Time-Tested Books, Sacramento, California. "When You Come contains poems written from 1983 through 2012. Some are lighthearted, but most are about stories and events that have affected me deeply. Writing has always felt like a safer way of expressing myself than talking. This book makes clear why." -author Liz Purcell
