Reviews

"You pick up a Jennifer Grotz book because you want to hear that voice again, and again. She's making some of the finest work of our times. Maybe it's no surprise, then, given these times, that her newest sweep of poems-- Still Falling--is a cataract of grief, a cascade of elegy that is as quietly ecstatic as it is undaunted, steady, loving life as it mourns."-- Jesse Nathan, McSweeney's

"Still Falling is an undeniably gorgeous book of love poems full of grief. In these pages, Jennifer Grotz writes line after line of direct statement in rhythms that would leave any reader breathless and wanting more: 'I will call desert this kingdom that you were, / sun this loneliness. I will say / wasp to name the fear.' I am in awe of Grotz's power to grow and transform book after book. I cannot read Still Falling without crying."--Jericho Brown
