Review:

In Necessary Light, Pat Fargnoli proves that joy is not only possible, but that the highest joy is arrived at only after bearing the weight of experience through some terrifying valleys. Ms. Fargnoli's heartening, disturbing, mature first book is rich with two things poetry can never have enough of: energy and wonder. -- Brendan Galvin

Readers will discover many facets of Fargnoli's voice . . . but I think the two attributes that will most impress readers are, first, the almost shimmering galdness with which Ms. Fargnoli replies to the gifts of beauty and of human love; and, second, the compasion with which she addresses whatever is beyond her own intimate surroundings. Whatever it costs her, whatever it takes, there seems to be for Ms. Fargnoli only one world and only one way to live within it: with a ferocity of attention, care, and response. -- Mary Oliver
