Reviews / Endorsements



“Fanny Howe employs a sometimes fierce, always passionate, spareness in her lifelong parsing of the exchange between matter and spirit.”—Michael Palmer

“With extraordinary self-scrutiny and complexity—and unmatchable musical poise and beauty—Fanny Howe examines our relationship with ‘other’ worlds, purgatories of various kinds: genetic, historical, theological.”—Rae Armantrout
