Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Praise for Joy Harjo: Fueled by a deep musicality and the indelible spirit, the poems of Joy Harjo are at once voraciously inventive and powerfully human...These are poems that hold us up to the truth and insist we pay attention. - Jackson Poetry Prize citation, judged by Ada Limón, Alicia Ostriker, and D. A. Powell [Joy Harjo's] poetry is light and elixir, the very best prescription for us in wounded times. - Sandra Cisneros, The Millions Joy Harjo is one of the real poets of our mixed, fermenting, end-of-century imagination - Adrienne Rich Joy Harjo is a giant-hearted, gorgeous, and glorious gift to the world. Her belief in art, in spirit, is so powerful, it can't help but spill over to us--lucky readers - Pam Houston
