Heather Fuller (Washington Review):
varied registers sources and textures of language… provocative and engaging… sublime
Kevin Killian (Krupskaya):
long list of strengths… always coming up with what Eliot might have called one’s objective correlative... she takes us out of our provincial concentration on American life to encompass broader social and geopolitical issues, tying them cleverly to the personal – relationships histories feeling.
Celia L. Alvarez (Jacket Magazine):
a mosaic of narrative best referred to as political eco-feminism … passionate rather than simply driven by sociopolitical concerns … with a decidedly urban and postmodern sensibility… engages with language on its most primal, semiotic level … brings together the languages of science, gender, and politics to question the ways in which we relate to one another … meaning is accumulated rather than created.
