Reviews / Endorsements

“There is a quiet loveliness to these poems. Gigi Marks writes, in a voice that almost sings, and with the simplest, gentlest words, of sheltering and being sheltered. With the graceful delicacy of her poems, Marks reminds us, gently and without sentimentality, of what’s truly important in our lives.”—Irene Willis
