Let me preface my review by saying that I met Tracy Conway two years ago at our local renaissance festival and since that time we have become good friends who communicate on a fairly regular basis and see each other from time to time. Tracy stated to me that she was worried that her friends would not be honest in their reviews of her writing in order to prevent hard feelings. However, I have never been one to mince words with friends and am quite forward with my thoughts. A friendship with no ho ...more

I realize now that after having this book for over a year, I never have posted my formal review. Like a few of the others here, I too, have the privilege of knowing the author. With that being said, regardless if I knew Tracy or not, hands down this is my favorite collection of poems. This is the one book that I carry with me in my bag, no matter what other book I'm reading. I have damn near dog-eared the entire book. I have many favorites throughout the book..Too many to name. I find myself goi ...more

Tracy Conway’s I Wandered From New Orleans: Poems from the South
is a well-crafted book, very professional in design, and an impressive size for a volume of poetry. When I started to read the poems, I was taken to a world I had never experienced and given insights into a life I’ve never had to lead. Tracy spent some time on the streets, and many of her poems reflect this experience with a poignancy I found enlightening.

I felt shivers running down my spine reading several pieces — impressed by the

Tracy Conway's poignant collection of poetry, I Wandered through New Orleans, speaks to the heart. Throughout the book, she captures the beauty and devastation of New Orleans before and after the Hurricane. If you've ever been to NOLA, her words will ferry you back - the sights, smells and the people. If you've never been, you'll want to go. But this collection isn't entirely focused on New Orleans. Conway's poems also reflect on self and identity. My favorites were "The Joker Smile" and "The Th ...more

I have been very reluctant on doing this, I do not enjoy giving bad reviews,however in good conscious I can do nothing else. The best poems in this book are quotes form other writers. Most of the poems had no rhyme nor reason. I have a very analytical mind and can easily grasp the abstract, but so many of the poems I could not figure out what the point of the poem was. Most of the poems left me thinking and.... where is the rest of it.
