About Reckless Lovely:

"These stunning pages, like a 'land-less landmass, [a] dollop-y desert dessert loosed,' fold moments of joy into 'Reckless Lovely' with inventive, chewy language, and a relentless appreciation of music and delight."
—Aimee Nezhukumatathil

"With its wondrous marriage of science and lyricism, this book navigates the riotous and righteous routes."
—Nance Van Winckel
