Editorial Reviews

Review

Dryansky never fails to bespeak the "preeminence of the body" nor to remember "the brain is wider than the sky." Thus here, before you, in your hands are judicious poems that reconcile the spiritual freedom of your spine and the presiding restraint at the doorstep of your brainstem.  In this dance is a lyricism that feels gorgeously fresh: present always is a transported music and a deft eye that makes her poems, like that from the best of poets, feel sponsored by all of the natural world which she renders as exquisitely as she does her own life
--Major Jackson


These bouncy meditations about the world "of inwardness and awkwardness" remind us that there are some things poetry gives us that other forms of writing can't. And yes it's intimacy I'm speaking of here, and the primacy of the individual's experience as she witnesses everything from a collective wind "singing in the mouths of birds" to the clear plastic tape on each six-pack of Fruit of the Loom.  Read this book.  It will make you feel better about your species
--Adrian Blevins

Format: Paperback
Dryansky's book is readable (in the good way-- accessible, layered and masterfully crafted). Each poem is refreshingly different from the next-- in tone, in content, in diction, in shape. This collection can be read by dipping in and out or by cozying up with a hot cup of tea and fully entering the playful, political, personal territory explored by Dryansky. Careful of the play~ it often teeters on danger or darkness, often your heart 'gets it' before your mind, and you start answering her questions, my favorite one being: "What did you hide beneath your mattress you wanted nobody to see?"!
Strongly recommend!

Format: Paperback
The poems in this book create a narrative for the experiences many of us have .The poet manages to be both spot on and lyrical. She had me looking at my own life and my surrounding with a whole new language with which to describe and validate my experiences.

I read this book from beginning to end and enjoyed the range and simplicity of thoughts, images, emotions, experiences that all were really real yet beautifully rendered with words and rhythm.
Thanks Amy Dryansky for such a rich work of art. I'll go back to it as I would a painting a movie a park a particular pair of pants a cafe- just to see what else it does for me!
