About Earthquake Daily:

"Highly inventive, these poems feel driven by emotional and cultural urgency, as earthquakes shock every part of the system, personal and collective. This is a world where the U.S. Geological Survey monitors catastrophes of mind and heart, where a quake strikes 'during 47% of our waking hours when we were thinking about something other than what was actually happening.' Poems for our shook times."
—Dana Levin
