“MacEachern’s poetry demands attention to the stunning beauty of her craft. MacEachern taps into what poetry does best, which is to bypass logical explanations and dive into an emotional core that here sings of strength above all.”—Manahil Bandukwala, Quill & Quire, starred review
“In Jessi MacEachern’s spellbinding (and spellblinding) debut, poems glint like slivers of glass but have the force of shrapnel. Shards of text, taut with significance, are read as if we are loosed in dream.”—Gillian Sze
“Self-examining but never self-absorbed, MacEachern’s poems are saucy and savvy; via a female gaze onto gender and spacings, they pulse with uneasy but hard-won life.”—Erín Moure
