In nearly every poem, the poet delves deeply. Her questing invites us to read and reread. For all academic and larger public library collections.

Sight Lines

Provocative work; a solid addition to academic and popular collections.

Republic Cafe

Eloquent and personal, beautiful and wrenching, these poems mine deeply the nature of love, violence, and memory, drawing you into a world of evil and pain but also touch, healing, and love: "Forehead to forehead, we tasted each other's name." Not to be missed.

In stunning language and elegant prosody, the poet honors life in its great variety—"When our species is extinct,// what animal will carry the memory/ of our lives?"—and a deep family connection to the land. Reminiscent of the work by Kentucky poet Wendell Berry; highly recommended.
