Reviews

These poems are blisteringly clear, devastated, and oracular, and they brim with the kindness that comes after terrible enlightenment. --Sarah Manguso, author of Very Cold People and 300 Arguments

You hold this book but this book also holds you . . . This book is alive, as painful as that might be to its brilliant writer. It's not much comfort but not much can comfort--comfort is not in this universe. What suffuses this universe is all the universe holds despite what, and who, is lost. Am I speaking in code? Any reader of this book knows what I'm saying about it--to the reader nothing, not even utter emptiness, is alien. And emptiness is never utter, though it can be uttered and that sound resembles a splash of stars, a milky wash of stark existence, consciousness, connectedness almost unbearably relentless, almost unbearably beautiful. --Brenda Shaughnessy, author of The Octopus Museum
