    What others are saying about OTHERNESS...

    This is language swooning and falling in love with itself; “consonants sharp as fangs and clean/ as bone.” Here are poems “burning the pages in my eyes;” poems that are sharp, hip, sassy and smart as whips, taut as drums; poems full of beauty and horror and passion, unpredictable at every turn. This is the kind of poetry that keeps poetry alive.

    — Cecilia Woloch, author of Carpathia
