About A Little Night Comes:

"In Julianne Buchsbaum's dense, laconic poems, poise solicits passion and urgency courts elegance. Her rich, lucid, alliterative lexicon, full of apt surprise and happily astray amid the glitter of evidence, makes a dictionary of the small parts of world and the larger parts those parts make ('some country / we were meant to wake into'), 'uttering things that people usually keep / to themselves.' And love is never far from the parted lips, in all its errors and ecstasies."
—Reginald Shepherd
