About Clean:

"Northrop's poems recall early photographs where the shutter was left open until the scene had burned itself onto the paper. Her images acquire definition word by carefully weighed word."
—Eric McHenry

"Northrop pares her lines back to the bone, conjuring a dark lyricism that's both unsettling and seductive. Her poems feel haunted, as if wind just rifled through the pages."
—Melanie Drane

"No vexed or fictive entity is beyond Northrop's unique, reconstructive, lyrical intelligence."
—Lisa Russ Spaar
