About The Amoeba Game:

"In these wise, sharply observed, dazzling lyric poems, we travel, as Skurtu opens to and is opened by her ancestral adopted country."
—Gail Mazur

"The earned, liberated laughter of survival and foreboding; a high-voltage mind thinking in images; candid grief; an irreverence that rises above convention to a true, untamed intuition of the sacred; love, with all its penalties and joys. With these qualities, the engaging poems of Tara Skurtu's The Amoeba Game offer a vision of our familiar world transformed by possibility. The title poem is a compact, funny parable of imagination engaging the unknown, and happy to encounter the unknowable."
—Robert Pinsky
