"Alison Stine's best poems here are confessional and meditative sequences, but are shadowed by the tradition of dramatic narrative; they propose types of redemptive performance....Their white spaces are crucial to this ironic self appraisal, in which a lost, outcast belated family is assembled by invocation."--Robert Hill Long
