Editorial Reviews


“Alison Stine renders landscape with a riveting, almost gothic ferocity. The universe of Wait crackles, burns brightly, while also leading into a darkness of its own. The collection is impressive not just for its immense formal grace, but also for the adamant, forceful desire—its ‘call of skin’—that singes through every poem.”—Maggie Nelson, author of Jane: A Murder

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Simon Barrett 'Il Penseroso' on November 2, 2011
Format: Paperback
I don't know Stine's first collection, which garnered 4-plaudits-4 (count 'em), but this has great power and purity (it could have been called Clean, after one of the poems) and while often opaque (to me anyway), its seriousness commands respect. I shall read it again; for a book - any book - there is no higher praise
