The tables have turned, Shira Dentz.


Today we’re proud to note that our book review editor’s recent poetry collection, door of thin skins, received thoughtful recognition by The Rumpus. Reviewer Nicole Walker writes:

“The book is so collected, so much of a consistent persona and a palpable narrative, it may well be a book of prose except for these metaphorical magic tricks. I picture the speaker on stage, stepping into a hoop, pulling up cloth around herself and turning from a bird into a pocket.”
