About Second Skin:

"Sally Bliumis-Dunnís Second Skin is one of the most compelling books Iíve read. This collection writes about nature in a way which is so intimately connected with the human pathos that it is impossible to lay aside. Her insights are startling. These poems are life lessons."
—Robert Nazarene

"In Sally Bliumis-Dunnís Second Skin, she explores the DNA of family connections with delicacy touched by a quiet though formidable strength. Bliumis-Dunn is building something mysterious and beautiful, poem by poem as she talks through the language of things. There is a remarkable fearlessness in the way she allows herself to fall into the vastness of vulnerability. In Second Skin, the wonder and perils of the natural world mirror the emotional terrain we all navigate with those we love."
—Frances Richey
