Editorial Reviews


"Read Reactor and let Vollmer refresh your geography in startling ways."—Robin Becke

"If Literature is ‘a study in comparative humanity,’ and I think it is, Reactor places new emphasis on our complicitous age of nuclear fission at all levels of conscientiousness, in the strategies of high brow expatriots, and Vollmer’s identification with the ‘lowest of the low’ wayfaring strangers, a high-wire act among her pantheon of peasant witnesses. This archeology of tonalities, sometimes evinced with compelling lines from her literary ancestors, connects the fierce remembrance of ‘family,’ hers and ours. We have a new vocabulary of songmaking, ancient and modern."—Michael S. Harper, poet laureate emeritus, State of Rhode Island

Vollmer is an amazing modern poet. Her work is a breath of fresh air, lyrical and solid. I highly recommend this author.
