Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"It will be almost impossible for a reader to calmly meander through Rogers's (Geocentric) new collection of poems; they strong-arm us with poetic gymnastics, blending scientific theory with luscious poetic rhythms....The book offers an extraordinary reading experience as she celebrates pure being: 'Can't you see?/ You, riding along with all its passengers,/ standing up, laughing now, waving/ your hat, hallooing and hallooing?'"

Review:

"One hopes that for every reader who finds this collection somewhat saccharine there will be five of the "celebrants" to whom it is dedicated. For there is little irony in these selections, which includes new works as well as poems taken from five previous books, and if the poet opposes anything it is lack of attention..." Library Journal
