Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

 “Erotic. . . . A substantial collection, written in a voice that is consistent without being predictable. . . . Words are made flesh in these poems. . . . Smart but not pedantic, sexy but not simpering.”
--Chicago Tribune

"Intelligence flashes, winks, gleams and dances everywhere in this book, along with human compassion, full and precise sensuousness, an acknowledgement of appetite, and a knowledge of history."
--Alicia Suskin Ostriker

"There's a hunger in the world for these poems."

—Gregory Orr

"Wit and learning and brilliance of phrase are the common currency of Natasha Sajé's first book of poems, poems that are thorough, even relentless in their pursuit. . . .Her touch is as sure as it is complete. She never allows the lyric to pale the dark narrative line not the interest in the story to distract the ironic music."

—Stanley Plumly
