Barbara Louise Ungar is thrilled to have received another rave review from blogger Rabbit Reader, who discovered her work when the Amazon logarithm suggested he might like it; intrigued by the title, Charlotte Brontë, You Ruined My Life (and no doubt by the excellent cover by Susan Pearce as well), and ended up selecting it to be on his Top Ten reads of2011 list! He has since reviewed her two prior books, with another push for Charlotte, at http://rabbitreader.blogspot.com/2011/05/thrift-and-origin-of-milky-way-by.html, comparing Ungar not only to Margaret Atwood, but also James Joyce (she can die happy now).
Ungar was also surprised and delighted to see that Charlotte Brontë, You Ruined My Life remained a Poetry Best Seller for Small Press Distribution in April for the second month in a row (http://www.spdbooks.org/pages/bestsellers/poetry/default.aspx), and is grateful to Nancy White for having gone to some trouble to get The Word Works books distributed by SPD.
