Welcome to Kate Gale's world. There are glass houses, a glass orchestra, sex on the roof. . . . Kate Gale knows her Bible and plays whatever music she wants on that musical instrument--but her m sica is always fresh, and it achieves wisdom.--Ilya Kaminsky, author of Dancing in Odessa

The clipped jumpy rhythm of these poems with their sudden bursts of syntax prove repeatedly that Kate Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own. She is also refreshingly out of step with today's poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.--Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate
