Reviews
It is as if the poet set fire to all her earlier work and wrote these new ones in the light of those flames.--Mark Wunderlich
April Bernard brings as deep, as concentrated and imaginative, an attention as it is possible to bring to reality, history, the self, and to their triple intersection in our living language. This is a miraculously balanced, refreshing, and startling book.--Vijay Seshadri, winner of the Pulitzer Prize
April Bernard has the best ear in the business. She harmonizes the raucous and the classic, the songful and the wry, the courtly and the quick. These new poems are the most powerful, intimate, lucid, and indelible she's ever written.--Wayne Koestenbaum
