Lexi Pelle's debut, Let Go With The Lights On, chronicles a wise-cracking ex-Catholic girl’s rollercoaster life while troubling the notions of self, art, religion, and beauty. Through the lens of pop culture, these candid narratives reimagine beauty standards and grapple with the awkwardness of girlhood, struggles with body image and recovery, and questions of faith. In this intimate journey, with a fearless and unreserved voice, Pelle constructs a vivid frame-by-frame exploration of the profound ways in which desire molds the contours of our lives. These introspective poems illuminate the complexities of love, our human beliefs and desires.

She was the winner of the 2022 Jack McCarthy Book Prize, a Pushcart Prize nominee, and a finalist for the Prufer Poetry Prize and the Marvin Bell Poetry Prize.

Wonderfully Witty

Ms. Pelle is a smart, witty, and charming writer whose work at times moved me to tears, sparked me to laugh out loud, and reminded me to cherish the relationships that make life worth living. An outstanding compilation. I look forward to following her work for years to come!

Remarkable Collection!

Lexi has an incredible collection of poetry here full of life and nuance, but it's her unexpected turns in a line that truly make this book stand out on the shelf. Her voice is gorgeous and this is a must for poetry collectors.
