Another splendid new one by one of our best, who never stops paying attention, and is never unwilling, and summons from her readers unwavering trust.--Mark Doty, author of Deep Lane
Beyond her admirable tenacity and spirit, Laux is just plain wise--and refreshingly unpretentious in her wisdom.... Laux's new poems arrive at the end of the collection as a perfect finale.--Jonathan Russell Clark
Dorianne Laux is one of those poets I turn to again and again for cradling beauty and darkness so close together in a poem.--Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author of Oceanic
Laux is majestic.... Her selected poems are gorgeous to revisit, but these new pieces are symphonic--and they become a perfect coda of grief.--Nick Ripatrazone
Throughout the years and throughout her five books Dorianne Laux has not faltered. She has wrestled with the angels and with the serpents; Eros and Thanatos are wrestling still, and the sound they make is the sound of this woman singing.--Marie Howe, author of Magdalene
When Laux welcomes readers into a personal moment, she speaks for humankind.... This is a catalogue of honest work, from beginning to end.
