What People are Saying About This

David St. John

"Angie Estes' stunning new collection of poems is a brilliant and intellectually dazzling investigation of the often unstable relationship between language and experience. These heart-breaking and inventive poems negotiate the oscillations of event and memory in order to reveal the delicate and highly filigreed interweaving—in our lives—of action, meditation, and utterance. Beauty and insight spill off every page of this rich, compelling, and essential new book of poetry."
