About Light Thickens:

"Reading Elizabeth Biller Chapman’s poems is like inhaling draught after draught of perfume, except instead of becoming numb, your sense of smell sharpens. ‘Razor clams lie in the cole, creamed honey of their shells.’ For pure luxe of language, no one is more adept. Chapman’s imagery is stunning."
—Enid Shomer

"Elizabeth...writes with vigor and soul — her luminous poems shine like beacons."
—Naomi Shihab Nye
