Reviews

"With each successive book, there's even more grandness to Brimhall's narrative voice. She writes with a commanding sense, with some poems feeling like the voice beaming to Job, and other poems arriving like a hypnotizing whisper at night... Another masterful book from one of our finest poets." --The Millions
"Traci Brimhall's Come the Slumberless to the Land of Nod unfurls like a series of dispatches from the shores of grief, and then the burning wildfire of divorce. ...[H]er poems feel as intimate as a handwritten letter." --John Freeman, Literary Hub
