About How to Build an Owl:

"The title poem of Kathleen Lynch's premiere collection, How to Build an Owl, is also her ars poetica. 'Decide you must,' she begins, and we know immediately she is speaking of the writing of poems. Lynch has decided. She is no weekend poet. Her commitment is to the language of the heart and to her hunger to understand both her own wildness and her responsibility to the things of the world."
—Andrea Hollander Budy
