"Toni Stern has given us some jewels of hard-earned wisdom in a voice, by turns, wry, tender, and often aslant — as Dickinson tells us the telling of truth must be."

—Dan Gerber, Sailing Through Cassiopeia

"Toni Stern's poetry chapbook is a singular example of modern and elegant verse. It's alternately clever and poignant, funny and wise. She has accomplished wonderful things in her long creative life, to be sure, but perhaps nothing is more assured and mature and successful than this collection of her poetry. I cannot recommend it more highly."

—Monte Schulz
