Review:

"These poems embody a quest for directness and for a lost sense of the living world....The pleasure they give comes in great part from the way the truth and simplicity of the experience come alive in the language...That life, that oneness, are a joy to discover....The writing is original in the way that matters...." --W.S. Merwin

"Akers finds moments of utter mystery and terrifying beauty in the least expected and commonplace." -- --Booklist

"There is a kind of radiance in this book, earthy radiance--body light." --The Women's Review of Books
