Reviews

Giannisi turns the quotidian into the magical in poems that push against the shifting present moment.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Giannisi is unquestionably herself within a vanguard of Greek poets for whom self-awareness and honesty have become second nature.--Shon Arieh-Lerer "World Literature Today"
Sneeden is a meticulous translator and a poet in his own right. He brings Phoebe Giannisi's work to life with immediacy and conviction.-- "Edmund Keeley"
Giannisi's work glitters with such fragments: minimal, direct and dense with loss.--Max Sydney Smith "Review31"
An intimate and utterly feminine perspective on language and regeneration.--Jessica Gigot "The New York Times"
