About Immigrant Model:

"The poems of Immigrant Model embody robust and sizzling magic—Mihaela Moscaliuc transports readers through vivid, multilayered scenes, richly startling images, and a mesmerizing gift for narrative. Here, a haunting world we would never otherwise see—our sense of history and terrain is altered forever."
—Naomi Shihab Nye

"To paraphrase Norman Mailer, when history becomes absurd and fraught the poet must take over for the historian. Moscaliuc is such a poet. She takes on Ceausescu’s Romania as well as the aftermath of Chernobyl with a surreal, sensuous ferocity. Mouth, lips, tongue (some of the most frequently repeated words in the book) are means of survival; they devour and indict. The book’s sustained power is extraordinary."
—Stephen Dunn
