In the meantime, here's some great praise for Junkie Wife:
Alexis Rhone Fancher's poems are not for the squeamish—for anyone afraid of dirty words—but they are for anyone who has experienced mismatched desires, for anyone who has looked back at the past and felt relief tinged with regret, and as Fancher writes in 'Snapshots and Lies,' 'a miasma of scorching discontent.' Which means all the rest of us. What you will encounter in this collection is the unraveling of a sick marriage and of a wife, but what you will take from the artful telling, careful verse, and precision of details, is the understanding that so much good art is born from survival.
