About Tomas Simon and Other Poems:

"If the creative task is to balance clarity and mystery, Samantha Reiser has done it. If the moral task is to weigh acts of creation against acts of destruction, Reiser knows: 'Nothing is captured.' 'I fear my own thievery,' she wisely writes, as she pushes herself and us with raging agility in content and form, in this, her first collection of poems."
—Estha Weine
