“Wright’s 15th book and second collection of prose poetry/lyric essays (after 2005’s Cooling Time) further reveals her particular Southern wit, engagement with art, and commitment to social justice.”

—Publishers Weekly

“Nowhere in poetry have I seen such skies. They reverberate with the violence on the ground, just as the poem’s negative space, vibrating in and around its parataxis, becomes a kind of stateliness, a kind of doing of justice. Isn’t this what minimalism was really for? To put enough space around a thing it might finally get some kind of honest witness.”

—Ariana Reynes

“Wright’s short essays not only have a large if idiosyncratic scope, but also make one aware of and eager to imitate her restless and intense searching for worlds and words. “

—Martha Ronk
