Reviews

The richness of life & time as they happen to us in tiny explosions all the time are grasped and held up for us to view in [her] magnificent work.--John Ashbery
All her work is full of brilliant observations, humorous and sometimes astounding conclusions, and amazing juxtapositions inspired by linguistic associations, patterns of movement, chance, mathematics, whim, and imagination.--Michael Lally
It offers warm welcome: it comes straight out of the ground and is loaded with good humor.--Jason Morris
