"A riveting wildness animates Stoop City, Kristyn Dunnion’s sixth book. This collection of interwoven stories details the complicated, delicately connected lives of recurring characters who balance on the edges between embraced identity and despair, between shared community and nothing. These are not technically ghost stories, but they are haunting stories."
"Brown’s mastery of poetic form is never more dazzling, though, than in his invented duplex poems. ... Weaving together elements of sonnet, pantoum and ghazal, Brown’s new form blends both Western and Eastern traditions into one that feels decidedly Southern in its colloquial tonality and blues-inspired, jazzlike variations."
"Roth, like Bachelard, understands that inhabiting a geodesic dome means something fundamentally different than inhabiting an ice-fishing hut. Not only are the spaces themselves different, but the histories they have seen are different, the realities inside them are different, for the way light enters them and shapes time inside of them is different. They are, quite literally, universes apart."
