About Mixed Plate:

"Turning the body inside out with both mental and physical discourse/intercourse, Faye Kicknosway’s poems lead us first through desire and titillation then straight into despair before the reader finds any salvation. The journey will ravish you."
—William L. Fox

"Faye Kicknosway's materials arrive into her world rough and charged with real and potential powers… I have been reading her work for a long time and I'm greedily gluttonishly elated by the pleasure of having it all in a big book."
—Andrei Codrescu
