Sam Pereira Thanks so much for the book review at Poetry International.
"These are the poems of a person fully engaged in the 21st Century and all of its endless dramas, sometimes political in nature, sometimes personal, but always maintaining a sense of true ancestral history. Surprisingly, some of Ms. Borges Accardi’s power as a poet comes when these two approaches meet head on, as in the delicious poem “The World in 2001.” It is certainly true that, for those of us who were cognitively aware and physically a part of that time, the year alone is enough to conjure great sadness and regret. However, here, Ms. Borges Accardi masterfully includes the unexpected from that time, along with the obvious examples of things related, directly or indirectly, to 9/11. The resulting bond that occurs between reader and word is both human and humane at once."

New Review at Amazon: "Some poems are stirred by terrible times across the world. . . 'The woman does not know he/ carries the devil’s four poster bed/ in his palm…' Some resonate with ordinary people doing ordinary things—hunting, cooking, gardening. The collection contains beautiful, evocative poems of relationships and people dealing with life struggles, “…and 'A man in blue takes a seat/ At my table without asking…/In a place where you are/ The last person.' (Sundown Town), as well as 'Arriving at the place/of the pain I hold it at arm’s length, / away from sensation, into the deep"

"Millicent Borges Accardi's most recent book Only More So is aptly named. In many ways it is an expansion of her original chapbook Woman on a Shaky Bridge, Her powerful poem "Ciscenje Prostora," the opening poem "On a Theme By William Stafford" and even the new book's title poem are all part of that first volume. The themes of sexuality, her inheritance as a Portuguese American, and the primacy of emotion in human lives are still there." From Michael Northern's book review in June issue of WordGathering http://www.wordgathering.com/issue38/reviews/accardi.html

New interview with artist Michael de Brito: "The magic of his work lies in his ability to make connections to the old country and to family, as well as connections to the present day. His subjects are family members, grandparents and cousins pictured in intimate gatherings in the kitchen or backyard–many of which involve food, the heart and soul of any gathering."

A poem about Tom Jones and the LBC for the steamy summer. Up at S-Curves
by MILLICENT BORGES ACCARDI I was eight, going on seventy. We ripped our way through Mickey Spillane With helpless women tied to chairs Blindfolded on the covers of paperbacks. Then the T-Birds, roller-ball, those chicks knew How to elbow and rough it up. We ate coffee ice cream out of cantalopes, then lazed about On the love seat. Tom ...
