Tar River Poetry
"The place of her poems... is truly the embodied experience in the larger world. She douses us in imagery that we can voice in our mouths and feel under our fingers."
"I have no reservations at all with Beautiful in the Mouth or the poet behind it: if my praise seems even too encouraging for an unbiased review, just know that this is possibly the best book of original poetry that I've encountered since I first began reviewing books in 1998. Perhaps it is because Kuipers as a poet is much like myself in her foci of intimate affairs and broad natural landscapes, or perhaps it is because she is so skillful in crafting poems that tell stories or minister to our emotions honestly and she can do so with an impressive economy of words. She has simply impressed me... [h]ow she did this exactly, I cannot quite place into words."
CutBank Literary Magazine
Never before have I read a collection of poetry in which nearly every poem echoes my own thoughts and misgivings on what it means to be a woman, to be in or out of love, to grapple with mortality, to finally embrace the volatile nature o f the self, or to deal with the consequences/ of happiness.’ This is an intruiging collection that deserves your heart’s attention. I fell in love. I hope you do too.” -American Microreviews and Interviews

Top Customer Reviews
In Beautiful in the Mouth, Kuipers uses unexpected and compelling language to examine the tensions between the different places she has lived as well as to explore the body.
Beautiful in the Mouth left me breathless, wanting more, sad when I'd reached the end.
Kuipers is most assuredly a poet to watch. This is not a book I can imagine anyone would regret taking the plunge and purchasing!
