“This wry book is like a wave that knocks you over and changes how you view the world. . .[It] mixes salty humor, invigorating rhythms and sharp-edged wisdom.”—The Washington Post
Scattered at Sea takes deep, often beautiful dips into matters of femininity, sexuality, and mortality, while staying fleet, feisty, and musical enough to feel like short adventures. .  .Gerstler’s real strength is in the way she collides the sensual with the spiritual. . .the world she creates is beautifully diffuse, as freeform as her poems are.”—The Boston Globe
“Gerstler once again brilliantly amplifies the natural world in this blisteringly humorous eleventh collection. . .her dexterous poems work as satire as well as truthful reflections of humanness, often beautifully crushing in their honesty. . .what is most compelling is Gerstler’s dynamic consideration of spirituality, afterworlds, and reincarnations. . .[A] delightful, surreal, and well-rounded book.”—Publishers Weekly
