Reviews / Endorsements

“Few new poets lend themselves so well to being quoted: 'I sang in the bath until you learned the songs.' Halebsky knows no world is perfect, but she is less inclined to file objections than to defend, and to celebrate, what she has, what she can do, and whom she can love: "All poems are about love," she says, comparing herself "to the orange tree that won't lose its leaves" — though the same page warns us not to trust her, "raised on misquotations, abbreviations, unsubstantiated claims.”—Stephen Burt, Los Angeles Times

“Robert Frost believed a poem should begin in delight and end in wisdom, but in Tree Line, Judy Halebsky proves a poet never has to choose between the two—her poems begin in both and end in both. Smart, sexy, thoughtful, and beautiful, Halebsky’s lyrics are a masterful marriage of tradition and innovation. This remarkable book loves many things—language and landscape to be sure—but most of all, it loves this world and how we make our way in it.”—Dean Rader
