About Cornucopia:

"Molly Peacock is never afraid to interrupt herself, to turn in the direction of a distraction, even to shout out in the middle of a poem. The page can hardly contain her spirited, sprightly voice. The new poems here are her liveliest, most surprising."
—Billy Collins

"Molly Peacock's precision in Cornucopia makes each moment ignite with bounteous pleasures."
—Yusef Komunyakaa
