Praise

Praise for Beliefs and Blasphemies

"Beliefs and Blasphemies confirms Adair’s unique place in new poetry as an American original."                            
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Toughness, grace and humor. . . . This collection points the way back to an American tradition of religious poetry understood and cherished by the likes of Elizabeth Bishop and Louise Bogan."
Publishers Weekly


Praise for Ants on the Melon

"A sensibility of genius."  
Time

"The rhyme is ingenious, the humor saucy and unsparing, and the author clearly takes a delight in perversity, in an inversion of the expected."
–Alice Quinn, The New Yorker

"Extraordinarily moving. . . . Her voice is clear, assured, varied, and utterly her own."              
–A. Alvarez, The New York Review of Books

"How bright and unmuddled and unaffected and unswerving these poems are. There’s such aplomb, no faking, such a hard true edge. They never miss."
–Alice Munro
