Reviews

"These poems are hyper-aware of their contradictions, yet completely emotionally vulnerable. They refuse cynicism and pretense, and such a refusal explodes any possibility of intellectual distancing or emotional hiding."--Jennifer Moxley, Poetry Society of America

"Because the poems are not charged with having to be about anything . . . their bareness becomes their subject. Their lines, skinny and brusque, feel precarious. . . . 'What is of value in a poem besides its meaning?' Zurawski, writing in solitude, seems to offer this answer: the transaction between the reader and the poet. The book's dedication reads 'for you.'"--Darcie Dennigan, Boston Review

"A book of poetry that asserts itself with the various boundaries of open forms."--Woodland Pattern
