Industry Reviews

"The first book of poetry by the painter Lise Downe, is simply stunning. Its painterliness emerges in a language that is saturated with sensual tones. . . . Intensely lyrical, even pastoral, these poems . . . transport the reader . . . in a kind of dizzy but precise awakening to the shifting forms and colors of the world." --"University of Toronto Quarterly" "This writing shimmies away from terra firma, follows tendrils of wondering . . . Our challenge is to enter this world of syntactic slippage, to allow that velvet increase: the rewards, I think, are as profuse as the leaves that thicken the cover." --"Books in Canada"
