    • A few months ago I wrote a review that started with the following sentence: "Bram Stoker had an awesome Dickensian name, awesome enough, in fact, that he should have written himself into the novel, perhaps as the villain or as the ridiculous character who clenched his eyelids shut, punched his fist in the air, and shouted "I'm BRAM!" each time the vampire hunting gang destroyed a coffin or accomplished something heroic." My point there was that DRACULA was boring. It needed some extra flare, som [...]


    • Beautiful poems full of body & reconciliation with the body. This from "A Pass":Forgive us our trespassesas we forgive, I softly reciteamong strangers, remembering the hand of an older mangliding up my thin dress.I twist free of him,keep speaking as if he is justa rich family friend chatting,and I am still safein the shape of my skin.Of course, it sets me back,as each death resurrectsthe memory of all other deaths,and you must return to mourn your full store of passings afreshame and rage, h [...]


    • Very rarely does a book of poetry grab me by the scruff of the neck. Even more rarely does a book of poetry grab me, kiss me, and compel me to stay with it--like Odysseus on Calypso's Island--even when people might swear I had better things to do. But this book of poetry called me like no other ever has, speaking to my embodied experience as a woman of faith who seems constantly sorting out disparate (often contradictory) messages about motherhood and scholarship, work and sex. This collection o [...]


    • So much for me to like here. Kasdorf writes about so much I like in poetry--the female experience, faith, immigrant experience etc. The first section is brutal and is sometimes hard to read (but contains some of my favorite stuff). The rest of the book is much quieter but none-the-less wonderful.


    • 3 1/2 Stars. The strongest thing about this collection is that each poem alludes to something more expansive than its initial subject. One gets the sense of being connected not only to the specific experiences and emotions of each poem but also to the experiences and emotions of humanity.


    • Wish I had it here with me to mention some of her lovely allusions. Very nice collection of poetry. Mostly positive too, which is nice, as it seems like so much modern poetry is very melancholy.


    • I don't know that I am qualified to review poetry, but I didn't find this collection as enjoyable or thought provoking as I did Sleeping Preacher and The Body and the Book.


    • "Definition: To Fix" - One of the most thought provoking and beautiful poems of all time IMO. It inspired me to get an orange lily tattoo!
