Kate Northrop’s new poems capture the ephemeral thresholds between natural and supernatural worlds. Through the mist and snowfall of the American Landscape, topographical and psychic, they momentarily illuminate figures at once familiar and strange: stray dogs, wayward people, and “fields rising. . . like a shroud / or a female voice.”
“Northrop's poems recall early photographs where the shutter was left open until the scene had burned itself into the paper. Her images acquire definition word by carefully weighed word.”
—Eric McHenry, The New York Times Book Review
“No vexed or fictive entity is beyond Northrop’s unique, reconstructive, lyrical intelligence.”
—Lisa Russ Spaar, Virginia Quarterly Review
