Editorial Reviews


"These are lyrics that briefly and beautifully change our view of the world. In this effort, they do a quietly wild, beguilingly sudden work of making us rethink the ordinary before we can help ourselves, followed by the unnerving next part that hits us consequentially - we live in this world they are describing, though we had thought that we understood it perfectly well already. The best in these poems are their smallest moments, but once encountered, smallness means nothing but inspired surprise, as they have the power to alter us with unexpected ease.... The poems here, in sum, offer crisp language, language that speaks to new views, felt and therefore inherently worthy ways of reporting, all made forceful by strong and easy narrative guidance. The speaking of these poems throughout, even in their drama, is quiet, making everything that happens all the more unsettling as these ideas reach into us." - Alberto Rios"

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. T. Conkin on April 26, 2007
Format: Paperback
I had the good fortune to hear Karin read from this excellent debut collection of her poems. I spent the rest of the evening reading both those poems that she read and the many that she didn't. Her imagery and form is very focused, her timing measured and her subjects thoroughly realized. This is a very well wrought work and I found that with each rereading there was more to discover. "The Ashes", "The Raspberry Room",

"Roanoke" and especially "Inheritance" have already left an indelible impression on me. Highly recommended.
