"Telling a moment is Kingsolver's apt description of what poetry does, and it's what she does, stunningly, in How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons)... How to Fly is language and observation at their most succulent, moments seized at their peak of ripeness." -- Jonathan Miles, Garden & Gun
"A gorgeous collection...These poems unplug from TV and social media and the outrage of the moment and turn our attention to the immediate and the everlasting, human intimacy and the power and mystery of nature." -- Tampa Bay Times
"Kingsolver brings her gifts of observation and reflection to HOW TO FLY...For a reader wanting to escape, to fly while grounded, this book is a map that offers surprise and delight." -- BookPage
