“L.B. Sedlacek writes with a keen eye, catching the slightest details of daily life and depicting them with the power of classic odes and elegies. Her poems skip and dance, meditate and sing. They also feast. Food centers this collection, tying it together in a tasty stew. In one of my favorites, “Cotton Candy Headline” poor children go to a ballgame and plead for concessions. Other poems view life through the lenses of moon pies, dry cereal, and coconut husks. All of these captivate and force the reader to take a closer look at the world.”              —Ace Boggess

“L.B. Sedlacek’s poetry collection,“The Architect of French Fries,” brings us the verve, honesty, and passion that those of us familiar with her writing have come to expect. Dealing with subjects ranging from the foibles of her childhood and adolescence to her concern that her 12-year old son is worried about nuclear war, Sedlacek writes with eloquence and clarity. Highly recommended!”

“I have been a fan of LB Sedlacek’s work since I discovered her through Poetry Superhighway several years ago, and The Architect of French Fries may be her best work yet. Lean and by turns warm, salty and with a perfect sprinkling of crispy humor, her poems never fail to satisfy and keep you coming back for more.”        – John Burroughs
