About In No Ones Land:

"In No Ones Land stakes a claim on wilderness and, most assuredly, manages to homestead there. These are not the poems born of quiet contemplation; they are edgy and lurid, painfully administering to the world of convenience stores, diners, one-night stands. I locked up all of the beautiful things that might move me, says Paige Ackerson-Kiely, daring to pick at the raw skin of being and to call it beauty: I am saying God, if you are anywhere, let you be an arctic night. From the starkness of glaciers to the empty refrigerator, these poems rise from the most barren landscapes and manage to make of them fabled islands, joyful joyful things."
—D.A. Powell
