Poreba maximizes the effects of visceral language in this fine-tuned debut.
 — Publishers Weekly 

If you listen carefully you can almost believe the movement within her poems is like breathing: inward-containment, outward-space.

I want such poetry close at hand.
— Peter Everwine, Judge, Philip Levine Prize for Poetry 

There is an extraordinary lightness to this collection of poems — it is as if they are floating just above the surface of the earth. Christine Poreba’s debut collection is radiantly lovely.

— Sidney Wade 

These poems are love letters to our interior lives, walks through the wilderness of our world, the register of a life lived deeply... This is a hard book to put down.

—Marty Saunders in the Raleigh Review
