"Testament to the surprise and beauty
that poetry can still be . . . .
She has a love of the hypnotic
wash of the words over the ear,
the dedication to the sounds,
and the love of dramatic gesture."
— The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Murray sustains the emotion and offers an eminently readable rhythmic narrative that crackles with candor and wry sagacity.”
— Detroit Free Press
