Synopses & Reviews
"Poems of arresting intelligence, precision, and beauty. In wonderfully crafted language, with the startling subtlety of certain of Emily Dickinson's poems, Lisa Williams takes us into eerily imagined worlds--the interior of a jellyfish, and the interior of a glacier; she beguiles us with the most seductive of poetic possibilities....This slender volume constitutes a journey of sorts, a pilgrimage 'out' that returns the questing poet, imagined as a companion 'you,' to her own life."--Joyce Carol Oates, prize citation
