Reviews

This feels like the book we've been waiting for: rigorous, generous, in love with the art of poetry, aware of the inner architecture of poems--and maybe it couldn't have been written by anyone but Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux, two passionate poets.--Marie Howe
An intelligent, lucid conversation--between the authors and between them and us. I have been with them all--there is no better companion!--Gerald Stern
Thoughtful, generous, and accurate to both deeper truths and the craftwork it takes to hold them...a superb guide for the working poet.--Jane Hirshfield
