To End a Conversation

To End a Conversation is a poetry collection that details our self-destructive nature and our inability to save ourselves once we’ve pursued love’s twisted, and dangerous, paths.

"Riess comes out swinging in the arena of sexual politics in her collection To End a Conversation. The collection hits a promising high note." - Saskatoon StarPhoenix

“In the contemporary social-scapes of Kelly-Anne Riess’ poems, paradise got lost a long time ago. Riess’ Eve is closer to Bridget Jones parachuted onto the streets of Regina. These are sly, wry, manic, and determinedly human poems for the new millennium . . . A sassy debut.” — Jeanette Lynes, author of It’s Hard Being Queen: The Dusty Springfield Poems
