About Sudden Fog:

"Poliner has a remarkable ability to speak intimately and eloquently about mothers, daughters, loves, books, music, and the discipline all that takes."
—Dave Smith

"Elizabeth Polinerís poetry, like her fiction, ushers us into a world of feeling. Itís as if her work is a deep lake that gives back to us, her readers, a true vision of ourselves as humans who feel and are aware of feeling. Because of this, Sudden Fog, rich with intelligence and event, offers mystery and illumination in amplitude."
—Kelly Cherry
