What People are Saying About This

Thomas Lux

"The Next Hunger is the perfect title for this exceptional first book, for two reasons: 1) She's not writing about lunch, and 2) It is, all at the same time, a book of human yearning, a book of gratitude, and a book of joy; these poems are made things, and they sing songs I've never heard before, and they're splendidly sung."
