• "Graham grabs you by the hand tugging you into a running pace across prairie time and space in a frenzied barrage of culture, history, memory and detritus." --Telegraph-Journal
• "In a manner reminiscent of Jan Zwicky and Robert Kroetsch . . . [Graham’s poetry] combines meditation with compact sensory impressions. . . . [Innovative], lyrical, wise, and moving, [her work] considers and details the surface changes of a region in Western Canada, evoking a strong sense of place." --Gerald Lampert Award jury citation
