From the Publisher"A zealously crafted improvisation...her work is a testing ground of edges, allegiances and resistances." --Publishers Weekly
"By turning language into courage, she manages to bounce you back from despair, keeps moving fear and pity into precarious laughter. Her poems are open, resilient, invisibly twisted: part safety net, part trampoline."
--Voice Literary Supplement
"The new poems are a striking body of work...Heather McHugh's Hinge & Sign is not to be missed."--Colorado Review
"McHugh brings poems from four previous volumes together with a significant amount of new work...[She] artfully entwines the prosaic with the empyrean, twisting mundane images into verbal feasts, letting language flow through her hands rather than shaping it to her will... This collection allows one to appreciate the development of her poetry over 25 years and to witness he increasing strength and maturity of her voice."
