Reviews

 "I love every poem in it which makes it the perfect collection for opening up on any page. For a poet who says she and her friends are not people people, she writes very peopled poems, commemorating afternoons with friends, conversations with family, childhood habits and misconceptions, all the peculiar ways people find to be with each other . . . These are poems that constantly open up new ways for us to see each other." --Anna Jackson, poet
