(1 customer review)



Katarina Boudreaux is a poet to be reckoned with. In Alexithymia, she takes the reader on a journey of the heart with poems that are deceptively simple. There is a soulful generosity and clarity in this collection, evidencing the fact that Ms.Boudreaux is an accomplished musician and teacher. With Alexithymia, Katarina Boudreaux takes her place amongst the serious poets, not only in New Orleans, where she lives, but in the entire world.

–Paul Catafago,  Mosaic Culture Project


Traumatic experience can result in alexithymia, the inability to recognize one’s own emotions. While the traumatic memory of a murder-suicide haunts these concise poems, their speaker battles emotional numbness in order to probe her experience for nuggets of hard-earned wisdom.”

–Julie Kane, Louisiana Poet Laureate 201-2013
