Praise For Mad River (Pitt Poetry Series)

“In every poem, [Beatty] keeps her fury contained, but omnipresent, so that it resembles a cornered dog’s warning growl, yet she hints of happier possibilities.”
--Booklist

"Beatty does offer deeply visceral and sensory work, especially in the second and third sections of this three-part book . . . she risks relative boldness and deep emotional commitment, disregarding political correctness in respect for this less readily sanitized realm of experience."
--Publishers Weekly
