"Wier's poems explode with variety, particularity, whirlwinds of detail and mystery, shrinkwrapped though they are: memoirs, dialogues, choral performances witnessing scenes both weird and familiar," -Rain Taxi Dara Wier's Reverse Rapture is a mosaic whose colossal proportions contradict the mundane character of its countless self-contained tesserae ... those who stay with it will find themselves face to face with a world whose eerily sharp focus suggests recent satellite photographs of Mars. And they will never be the same again." -John Ashbery
