About Rowing with Wings:

"This is a somber masterpiece. I cannot remember when I have read a book of poems that so nakedly confronted heartache and did so with such intelligence and mastery."
—Lynn Emanuel

"The aptly titled Rowing with Wings engages deeply and honestly with that most basic of social units, the family. Here the tensions between the damage of romantic betrayal and the small sustaining joys of childrearing are fully inhabited. The questions these poems ask are large and universal."
—Jane Mead
