Reviews

In her fourth collection, Wolff hits with constant flashes of humor and revelation in poems as tightly controlled as they are varied. [Its] wide range is one of the collection's finest qualities, with poems conjuring music out of fragmentation, narrative prose, rapid repetition, simple lyric imagery, and unexpected syntax.
--Publishers Weekly

Hers is a world desiring transfiguration, the renewal of harmonic convergence of self and outside-self. In this, [Wolff] is a romantic revolutionary, an exemplary detour from the dichotomous categorization of poets as being either experimental or lyrical. Yes, Wolff's work affirms, you can have it both ways and in fact be both.
