About Hourglass Museum:

"There are just handful of contemporary American poets whom I do not want to live without, whose books I keep by my desk and never lend out. Kelli Russell Agodon is one of these poets. Hourglass Museum is such a beautiful collection. Lyrical, intelligent, magical and honest, the poems are both of this world and out of this world. Her uniquely true and mystical voice is like a glass of pure water: refreshing, healing, and oh, so necessary."
—Nin Andrews
