Reviews

"[A] strong addition to her mulitgenre literary canon. Walker offers the prodding wisdom of an elder suggesting that we can cope by taking comfort in beauty, friendship, and human kindness; by always expressing gratitude; and by turning inward to hold ourselves accountable for what we contribute."--Booklist, Starred Review
"Walker forthrightly addresses our despair while ultimately offering poems of love and hope for all readers."--Library Journal
"The [poetry] collection is moving and timely, and highlights the still-raw trauma from our nation's recent past."--Vanity Fair
"A book that meditates on these contentious times, but also on life, love, hope, and gratitude, it's just what our literary souls were aching for."--Marie Claire
