Doll culture is much much more than doll as object, as this anthology excels in showing. The doll embodies cultural histories, which are more akin to Joseph Cornell's memory boxes than anything else. The doll also embodies emotional histories and traumas...With this fascinating collection, Diane Lockward has succeeded in editing an anthology that places the doll centre shelf in the poetic canon.

Dolls are small icons of memory and magic. They tell us much about ourselves--little vessels of love made of porcelain, wood, or plastic--bringing out all that is humane in us. These 88 poems imaging dolls have a surprising literary impact; because every kind of curiosity and caring is revealed--animating the inanimate.
--Grace Cavalieri, The Washington Independent Review of Books, July 2016
There are more themes in this anthology than I can possibly do justice to--abortion, fathers, doll-makers, paper dolls, doll hospitals, the Dionne quints. . . Each selection is a masterpiece, and each--in its way--vivifies for us what Marjorie Tesser in "American Girl" calls the "glut of love."
