Synopses & Reviews
"The poems in Sandra Gilbert's seem, to me, to be a triumph of exquisite learning. . . . Over and over, [she] chronicles her 'cool sensual descent' into the fertile dark underworld of Dionysian creativity, which, like her Sicilian aunts' Brooklyn summer kitchen, becomes 'the cool root' of her poetry." Diane Wakoski
"The range of this new collection is exciting. Gilbert travels along the shifting boundaries of past and present with wonderful deftness, making Jackson Heights into a magic kingdom. I love this rich ethnic mix."--Maxine Kumin
