Reviews

" . . . her first collection . . . is a high-spirited survey of our peculiar species, often with parallel glances at other animals . . . Mackowski's wit stands her in good stead . . . She has talent to burn . . ."
--Poetry Magazine

"A virtuoso performance. . . .Contains many delightful surprises and not a few ideas worth considering."

--Antioch Review


". . . gaze is superseded by sharp observation that yields vivid visual imagery and invites immersion. . . . Mackowski's rhymes, myriad and ingenious, are one of the most impressive features of The Zoo."
--The Yale Review
