Praise For Intruder

“Jill Bialosky’s powerful third book of poetry, Intruder, is sharply perceptive, reminding readers about the way life forces us to our knees while restoring us to our true selves.” —Los Angeles Times

“[Bialosky] attempts to do what generations of poets before her have tried—to articulate the ineffable. Most of these poems succeed at capturing and concretizing the ephemeral, the fragile, the fleeting, focusing on transitory spots of time that spark or conclude passion, inspiration, or change.” —East Hampton Star
