Cold Breath of Life: A Poetry Collection, paperback edition
"In this, her first full collection, Alyssa Cooper proved to me that she is a natural poet, a borne poet. It seems as if these poems flowed to her, through her eyes, her ears, her heart and then flooded out through ink onto the page. I can only imagine the surrender, the joy, and the softness that surrounded her as these poems arrived in the voices of the night-flowing through her as she listened in those moments of silence, epiphany, wonder and tears. This first collection of poetry by Alyssa Cooper is remarkably "brilliant".
Rumi once said "Sell your cleverness, and buy bewilderment". In this collection of poems, Alyssa Cooper has done that-and given it back."
