Review by: Rori O'Keeffe on July 19, 2016 :
I am thrilled to have this volume in my possession, and it's one of the select few books I keep in my library. I look forward to reading and contemplating the vibrant images over and again.

I found the poems to be well-structured and thoughtfully ordered. The paintings augment and amplify the poems' messages beautifully. I can't say I have a favourite poem or painting here - they're all incredible.

Review by: Mark Baer on Oct. 10, 2015 : (no rating)
Helen Morrigan writes with an elegant simplicity - these poems are sensitive without being sentimental - spare and powerful - and solid structurally. I was drawn to them because I am interested in the relationship between words and pictures - the art goes well with the poetry and taken together they are worthy of contemplation - there are no weak links here and even though this is a thin volume it packs a punch. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about one poem titled The Beach Club - haunting, dreamlike, a mood and emotion I recognize but can't quite name - what more can you ask for for $1.50?
