About To See the Queen:

"To See the Queen, Allison Seay’s haunting, spectacular debut, is a voice in communion—magically intimate and distant...Even when the world seems ‘too far away to touch, or is as a fantasy,’ Seay recreates it so that it ‘returns in a different form—this time as an avalanche, a ledge of snow, slipping / from the roof of a warehouse into even more snow.’"
—Claudia Emerson
