Poetry. "In A HOUSE WITHOUT A ROOF IS OPEN TO THE STARS, Mackenzie Carignan's poems make their way into the reader's consciousness by way of scrupulous perception. Carignan's acuity creates a vision of the world that the reader trusts even as it proves itself strange, eccentric. 'Spectacle and skeptical,' she writes, 'they both come from a speck / a fleck / a flicker a sliver / of what we see.' Carignan holds the tension of perception and skepticism aloft with keen intelligence. Intellect is augmented, however, by a depth of feeling that makes this book a project of consummate commitment and care. The world, fostered with such tenderness, resists fragmentation: 'It seems like disassembly / but it is finally alignment.'"—Elizabeth Robinson
