What People are Saying About This

Thurston Moore

“There's a distinct meditation in Priscilla Becker's poetry. … It's all very personal yet, like music with its beguiling sensuality, a shared experience of love, both intimate and distant.”

Rutger Kopland

“Priscilla Becker presents a mixture of feeling and thought, or rather the interaction between them. … This poetry makes you both feel and think intensively.”

Bill Knott

"Her voice bleeds and breathes with a paradoxically innocent wisdom, a freshness of perception unique as air. They open the page: they close the book. Becker is the best."
