Praise

"An intense, intelligent and wonderfully sly book of poems that should appeal as much to the general reader as to the poetry devotee."
–The New York Times Book Review

"With their short lines, sneaky rhymes, and casual leaps of metaphor, Garrison’s poems have a Dickinsonian intensity, and the Amherst
recluse’s air of independent-minded, lightly populated singleness. Many a working girl will recognize herself in the poems’ running
heroine, and male readers will part with her company reluctantly."–John Updike

"Wry, sexy, appealing — with a wonderful lyric candor."–Elle
