Staff Reviews

One part meditations on the birth of her daughter, one part meditations on war, Ford's latest collection of poetry is lyrical, introspective, sometimes dark, but always accomplished. One of 2014's better collections. [Mike]

Praise for Katie Ford
“Katie Ford has emerged as one of the most recognizably thoughtful poets of her talented generation. Manifesting a rigorous aesthetic combining allusiveness with inwardness, her poems mark the multivalent ways by which the moral conscience registers dailiness with history (also myth) and how consciousness itself perceives the relationship of the small to the overwhelming, the weak to the deadly, the remote to the pressing moment, the insignificant to the topical.” —David Rigsbee, The Cortland Review
