"These poems have all the instinct and fangs of a canine, and the plush, electric fur of a wolf ... Poets seeking to write poems that tell narratives in a new way ... would be wise to read this book." - Sean Singer, The Rumpus "The poetry, though infused with compassion for beings caught between rocks and hard places, doesn't plead their case in abstractions, but pinpoints the heartrending details of their predicaments." -Craig Lambert, Harvard Magazine
