Reviews
"The beauty of Bolton's poems does not come from avoiding the darker sides of life, but from putting it precisely at the center. With subtle precision, she embroiders a poetic world of a child's fears, of abuse, and of broken trust--but also of the experience of healing and of divinity--that will reach for your heart to pull you in."
--Eva Wissting, editor of Asymptote and Populär Poesi

"Coronation of the Cosmic Orphan proves the expansive beauty of contradiction as well as showing readers that there is an art in building whole worlds in simplicity. Bolton's collection explores the complexity of faith, trauma, identity, politics, and art. A delightful read that also leaves the reader questioning the nuances of that delight. What a beautiful thing to feel seen and to be called in to question yourself all within the span of seventy-eight pages."
--Bianca Alyssa Pérez, Texas State University
