About Rivers I Don't Live By:

"These poems are restless. They describe concisely her themes of geographic dislocation and without saying it outright, she zeros in on a universal wish to belong. As the poems inhabited place after place, I kept wanting to know where they would lead. Nelson’s poems, idiosyncratic in form, evoked a deep sensation. Her voice shifted something within me."
—Carol Levin
