What People are saying about this

Robert Pinsky
"Peseroff, a clear-sighted, good-humored poet, has written poems that have the virtues many of her contemporaries strive for: she attains at times an unpredictable, colloquial poetry that adapts the casual, protective comic sense of a generation's manners to the demands of art."
