"I love the large of the all-encompassing voice in Tamara J. Madison's work, its re-making of history, its daring, convincing belief in the spell of language that transforms, that enchants us into just beings.
I love the myth-making, and the imaginative sweeps of this work." --Ilya Kaminsky
"Threed, This Road Not Damascus, which takes its name from The Three-Breasted Woman and serves as muse for the poet, Tamara J. Madison, functions through multiplicity of voice, drawing on the innate strength Black women have long had to exhibit/endure, often in silence within patriarchal structures. Madison commits to the dangerous but beautiful task of poeting, which is often an insurrection against the dominate narrative for the sake of a more inclusive narrative." --Randall Horton
"Tamara J. Madison gives us a story 'between mantra, mojo, conjure' of women, women primordial. The retelling is lush and pure. The power of the poetry in Threed, This Road Not Damascus comes from her miracle of inventing--the poems are what they are about." --Carol Frost
