About The Hazards:

"By turns gorgeous and gut-wrenching, worldly yet intimate, Holland-Batt's The Hazards explores love and landscape from 'O California' to Queensland, Boston Common to Sicily. These 'postcards from another life' chart an inner travelogue, a new century in all its strange beauty. No one writes love poems like she does."
—Kevin Young

"What a powerful and insightful interpreter of the world Holland-Batt is. She pins down the urgent and competing forces of suffering and sentience, legacy and loss."
—Judith Beveridge
