Tom Lux calls these poems, "tough, funny, wise, sensuous, wild, and almost always celebratory." Nancy White vividly maps the landscape of childhood, tracking our transformation from rich, mute innocence to conscious participation in a world that both loves and starves. Pulitzer Prize winner Alan Dugan said, "These poems dream of the creation of pattern from the dark mud of dreaming. This is something! So is she."
