About Breach:

"Breach is a beautifully crafted collection of poems centered on Hurricane Katrina that moves incrementally, slowly unearthing the storm's maddening trajectory and aftermath through compelling imagery. Nicole Cooley has mastered the necessary telling of the infamous American tragedy through a hard-edged eloquence of twists and turns, weaving breathtaking lyrical narratives that embody the personal and the public. There's also a painful, and at times, even joyful, clarity to Breach that hooks the reader."
—Lynn Emanuel
