Editorial Reviews


Grace - the poet and the divine gift - tears back the curtain in front of the sanctum sanctorum and gives you that inner place with scrupulous realism.--Kascha Semonovitch,

From the Back Cover

  • Sancta is about a retreat (to a cabin in the woods)--but this is no Walden Pond.  Like Alex in A Clockwork Orange, Grace appears to have his eyes taped open to witness "Puddles blitzed by blood fly hatch" and the rest of nature's bounty.  The language pops and sizzles.  Here the poet's perennial project of attention is raised to the pitch of pain and is enjoyable (for the reader) nonetheless. --Rae Armantrout
  • Andrew Grace could have called this book Freedom, but he didn't.  As it stands, Sancta finds the poet railing against (and falling in love with) the only freedom that matters: that is, the freedom to choose one's own constraints.  Each of these poems fits the mind like a brick fits in the hand, and their speaker--like any one of us--is as capable of building as he is of rioting. --Graham Foust
  • A meditative daybook (and sometimes nightbook) in a tradition that runs from Thoreau down through Merrill Gilfillan, Andrew Grace's Sancta inhabits margins: of waking consciousness, of the lake by which the speaker makes his home.  Grace is a poet of consummate attention, one who "win[s] victories over the ordinary eye," for whom "the sparrows resume their bright, ruined Assisi" each day. --G.C. Waldrep
