Reviews

Named a Best Poetry Book 2017 by Publishers Weekly
"With her typical subtle and eloquent emotionality, Wier offers up harmonious meditations on disquieting themes. . . . Without pedantry or obfuscation, Wier's lines cohere into a philosophical discourse about the poet's relationship with the world."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
