I spend a lot of time looking for poetry that does something to me like what this book did to me: punched holes in my heart, stunned me with its beauty, pushed me closer to knowing what we've thought over for too long. It handles deftly race and identity, what it is to be human, and even the complexity of texting in these modern days. [Kenny]

It can be delightful to stumble across someone's quirky obsession. With Vol. II, we can firmly commit to being obsessed ourselves. Even more perfect than Vol. I, it is history, art appreciation, and travelogue, connecting us with their beauty and substance. [Raissa]
