Reviews

Everything is Movies  is a rollicking and elastic first collection and it announces Lea as a voice to listen for. ”—Matrix Magazine

Understander  is a book of standout lines amongst fragments and the employment of listing as technique. ”— The Rumpus

“Lea is playful rather than didactic, and he loads his work with gorgeously consonant lines … and surprising humour. ” —  The Globe and Mail
