Review quote

"This book is brilliantly, shimmeringly written. I like the skillful play of language, the shapes of the words on the page conveying multiple meanings, the reliance on the music of language, the shifting positionalities of the subject in different sections, and the mirroring of languages. I find Jeffner Allen's play of language thrilling and always mind expanding. The book is utterly delicious to read." -- Rosemary Keefe Curb "Here, Jeffner gives her readers a world of extreme complexity filled with play, horror, sorrow, and insight. She shows everyday life anew, in its possibilities, across enormous distances of territory, culture, class. Jeffner has developed a way of telling that surmounts the walls between conceptually different worlds. I think one of the important things Jeffner does in her philosophical poetry is to express the multiplicity of each woman and then the fluidity between women, a fluidity made of difference in and between women. This is a beautiful, highly readable book. I loved it." -- María Lugones, Carleton College "Throughout the book there is a weaving of the real, material violence women face constantly, together with a profound vision and love of women that crosses boundaries and interacts. This work comes alive for me because it shows me ways to face the horrors while at the same time helping me to find ways to stay open to the love. It nourishes my imagination and my memory, both philosophical and aesthetic. Outstanding." -- Sarah Lucia Hoagland, Northeastern Illinois University
