Reviews

"In this brilliant debut, clarity is ushered through form, strutting its way into life, into our lives."--Claudia Rankine
"The sorceress Sealey...serves up an impossible cento that punches the daylight from your chest. Nothing ordinary here. But beast? Yeah, that's it. This thing has teeth."--Patricia Smith
"A stunning cento, an erasure, and a defense serve, together, as ars poetica for Nicole Sealey's remarkable debut collection."--Natasha Trethewey
