“A vivid geography of concerns and commitments…Here is a book of uncanny calm in an era of panic. Here is substance and renewal.”
“A masterful exploration of longing and its consequences…spellbinding insights into the complexity of desire.”
“The stakes in Strong’s sharply etched and crafted poems are high: language that summons us to compassion, responsibility, gratitude for being alive.”
“Powerfully voiced… smart, edgy, well-written… an impressive first.”
