Reviews

"Wallschlaeger's latest collection is political, personal, and timely."-- Publishers Weekly

"How can you not be grateful, in such an ugly time, for a poet who so closely and wryly and wrenchingly and furiously observes a nation?"--Chicago Tribune

"She deploys a new vocabulary for talking about the legacies of slavery and white supremacy as they manifest in daily life--a vocabulary that is as damning as it is lush, as rich with sound as it is bright with image... The domestic scenes she makes in her poems complicate clichΓ©s of who black women in America are 'supposed' to be." --Hyperallergic

"The first-person perspective is harrowing and heartbreaking in its vulnerability and honesty."-- Luna Luna Magazine

"Wallschlaeger's is a poetics of multiplication and plurality."-- Entropy

"I admire the grave persistence of her vision, the precision of her eye and ear."--Joyelle McSweeney
