What People are Saying About This

Adrienne Rich

"Sandra McPherson reveals herself here as a master of the unexpected: just when you might think you've ‘got’ her, she makes another daring feint, another bold move. These poems are strangely American, fascinatingly familiar, and the voice speaking them is absolutely assured."

Carolyn Kizer

"Sandra McPherson has composed a wonderfully original work that draws on historic artifacts, journals and found objects to illustrate America in all its eccentricity and diversity. Despite this complex agenda, her lyric voice never falters; her clear eyes are firmly fixed on their objective."
