About Lick of Sense:

"I loved the spirit and heart and wisdom of this manuscript, the way it took me directly into a region and a set of lives and made them strongly alive for me.ÖAnd the poems were so full of surprises. Itís very American to me, to feel that you canít predict whatís going to happen in a poem. It keeps the hope going."
—Alicia Ostriker, judge

"Rhodenbaugh evokes the textures and nearly tactile charge of knowing something deeply and well simply because one is capable of describing itóas if Elizabeth Bishop suddenly turned up in a Southern Gothic."
—Molly Peacock
