". . . the poems are tight and controlled without ever feeling over-managed. They are crisp and clear and true. Van Prooyen explores (and ponders the very nature of exploration while doing so) and re-explores the self, the challenging of the rules, and her work is filled with desire and questions, innuendo and prayer.
--Allison Seay Read the whole review at Blackbird
"Laura Van Prooyen's combination of a delicacy of language and daring metaphor is dazzling. These poems are sexy, sensual, and sly."
--Richard Shelton, The Tattooed Desert, All the Dirty Words, Going Back to Bisbee
"Van Prooyen follows a long tradition of poets who dedicate their craft to the idea that all art should be aware of its role in connecting divinity to the laity, poet to the reader, holy to the banal."
--John Pate of The El Paso Times
