This is a sprightly excursion through life's foibles and joys, the dark and light of the world in which the author lives with extraordinary verve, insight, and exuberance. Gray Jacobik has written this: "Suzanne Levine’s Grand Canyon Older Than Thought presents a world that’s richly various, wry, witty, lushly drawn, delightful. We travel, cavort and caper, dream and scheme along with a speaker who’s in love with life and considers whatever appears, whether standard fare or charmingly oddball, worthy of attention closely paid." Amy Bloom adds, "Suzanne Levine’s new collection is wry. Moving. Surprising. A little autumnal (in a Parisian way). Like Szymborska, Levine is a poet of consciousness, loving the world while seeing every dark and light inch of it. You can peer in Grand Canyon for a long time and be glad of it." And this from James Finnegan: "It’s said that we live by our wits. Or perhaps, better said: By wit we can live. In any case, Suzanne Levine’s poems and prose poetry never lack wit. Wit allows her to navigate the complications and fraught passages of life. She understands that prose is just one more resource for the poet to employ. Her collection balances the serious and the heartfelt with the jaunty and the humorous. One of the pleasures of any book is getting to know the author. Suzanne Levine is good company."
