Reviews

."..each writer's new collection is a bracing meditation on mortality...Ms. Cruz's poems are an ecstatic overdose of language and emotion...Her razor-wire stanzas in The Glimmering Room, even better than her fine debut, Ruin (Alice James Books, 2006), are full of too-young desolation angels, 'the other almost-girls' and 'the boys who want to die.'...This powerful poetry is a heart offering by way of Ms. Cruz's ancestor-sisters Emily Dickinson and Sylvia Plath."--Dana Jennings, New York Times Review
