Reviews
"Part testimony, part archival project, Aurum is constructed of disparate narratives and fragments, lists of objects, and a series of drawings. These poems, like fine jewels, radiate through an impenetrable darkness like the lives depicted in this triumphant collection."--Cynthia Cruz

"Frazier's poetic indigeneity is neither framed nor calibrated in a rote or calculated way: of course not. Its concerned cadences surpass those of mere decipherment of the tale. Aurum is extraordinary." --Joan Naviyuk Kane

"Aurum is a trove of sensations. These poems leap in the mind with a mix of acuity and wildness. Santee Frazier's verbal intensities radiate from a deeply meditative marrow. His poems feel simultaneously allegorical and personal, relaxed and rigorous. Technical mastery is tethered to soul. Each time I read this book, I am more amazed."--Terrance Hayes
