"This is the kind of light-filled book we use to see the world more clearly and make our way forward--and we do it with a poem in each hand, as Kooser recommends."--Julie Larios, Numero Cinq--Julie Larios "Numero Cinq "
"The complexities and complications of the poet who is among and yet stands back, and who understands the limits of life yet yearns and hungers for everything life has within it, are offered in The Woods Are On Fire, and the pleasures and challenges of great poetry can both be found in this necessary book by Fleda Brown."--Adrian Koesters, Split Rock Review--Adrian Koesters "Split Rock Review "
"Reading a poem by Brown is a lesson in how to read one's life, how each small thing, each seemingly casual detail, is in fact connected to perceptions and understandings of profound significance that we can all divine if only we calm our vision enough to fully experience the perishing present."--World Literature Today--World Literature Today (09/08/2016)
