About The Ceremonies of Longing:

"These poems hold a surprising stealth....'It's just life,' I kept telling myself as I read, but how I admire poets who can take the ordinary and then prove to us, through arresting lyric, that it's anything but."
—Cornelius Eady

"The lyric interiors of The Ceremonies of Longing pull us fluidly and relentlessly toward depth, honesty, and compassion."
—Greg Glazner

"We open this book and oh, reader, we're transformed....Story and secret coexist in a narrative so compelling we read like addicts to discover what happened, what's happening here."
—Hilda Raz
