Reviews
"On Migration: Dangerous Journeys and the Living World presents a beautiful fusion of Padel's prose and her poetry. . .[She] writes masterfully in both forms, and both should be read to grasp the book's dexterity. . .The poems underscore that she's technically nimble enough to write as successfully in the voice of a ship's barnacle as in the voice of an Ellis Island immigrant."--Weekly Alibi
