A pivotal body of work that spans over ten years, Peeling Off The Layers is an ode to surviving adolescence and finding strength through life’s valleys. Transforming from the emotionally broken to a roaring lion, this intimate take on life’s exhortation gives a very visual image of vulnerability. The poems in this book encourage us all to take a stand while in our plight. Standridge is a deep force that constantly plays on words and rhythm throughout her poetry. Her commitment to community and children are reflected in her use of repetition, charm, and youthful expression. This collection reflects literary works of the African American Diaspora and scholars alike. It speaks to young people everywhere who feel like their voice is going unheard. A writer with dramatic edge, wit and politically conscious overtures, Tarsha Proctor Standridge is a writer that must be read.
