"She writes...with the honesty of a survivor and the elegance of a stylist. Whether satirizing...or keening...or offering her own story with irony and gracefulness, her VOICES are promising poems. I recommend that readers read them, and recommend that she write more."
__Christopher Bernard, editor, "Caveat Lector" (1996)
