Reviews / Endorsements

“These lyrics are forms of deliberation, thoughtful as poetry can be. A magician is at work: she asserts a world, possible and shifting. The world is divided and put back together tenderly, partially whole.”—Steve Orlen

“Luminous, strikingly original poems…a most remarkable first book.” —Thomas Lux
