PRAISE FOR "Daughter Rhymes with Laughter"
  • Each poem is a revelation, quiet and resilient

    "In her first book, "Daughter Rhymes with Laughter", Natasha writes with uncommon kindness about the people we call family and the relationships we learn to cultivate with our selves. In each poem she carves from history and memory a place for her stories. Each poem is a revelation, quiet and resilient, of a woman claiming her voice. These words belong to Natasha, but for a little while she generously lets them stay with us, giving us the space to reflect on who we are and the relationships that we carry with us in our own stories." -Sanjana Bijlani

  • It is a self-portrait of love, fear, silence, and laughter

    "Daughter Rhymes with Laughter is the boat that survived the flood, the scalpel dissecting the doctor’s misdiagnosis, a witch that refuses to burn. It is a self-portrait of love, fear, silence, and laughter. There is a reason Natasha always opened for the ‘09, ‘10, ‘11 and ‘12 CalSLAM teams. She is our greatest champion: an unshakeable force, a noble truth seeker, and a really, really, really good writer. This first collection of poetry is testament to all of this and more. If you aren't familiar with Natasha Huey, consider this a proper introduction." Gabriel Cortez
