In “Stamped,” Emma Alford creates poems in response to postcards from her late best friend, capturing the nostalgia associated with a friendship cut short too early. These poems pull readers into the friendship between these two young girls. 

Emma Alford’s first book, Stamped, is a beautiful elegy. Expertly rendered through a series of poems that transforms a friend’s postcards into a means of coming to terms with loss, this collection participates in the great tradition of English-language poems that celebrate and mourn best friends lost too soon. This is a deeply moving book and one I will read and re-read for years to come.

-Michael Smith, Author of Multiverse and Byron in Baghdad.

Stamped, a touching hybrid chapbook of poems and postcards commemorating a beloved friend. This debut collection, born out of grief, brings to life a vivid friendship and an irrepressible girl who was "just so quick to love."

- Ann Fisher-Wirth, Author of Dream Cabinet and Carta Marina
