Editorial Reviews

"Have you heard rocks keening? Anne Le Dressay helps us recognize the sound. Austere as ancient standing stones, her poems are perfectly shaped, perfectly positioned to reflect the wordless light." - Mary A. Wright "In a voice both tender and mordant, Anne Le Dressay traces the seismic shifts of the urban world where identities are never constant. These are poems that test the thin walls between self and stranger, reaching through to touch us with the dark wit of recognition." - Nadine McInnis
