Praise For Star Ledger (Iowa Poetry Prize)

“Hull inhabits a decaying universe swirling with trashed hopes and the ashes of burned-out desire. . . . The poet's wayward voice perfectly matches her vision, her images and setting often stumbling into each other for chaotic effect. This is an intensely felt, finely wrought body of work.”---Publishers Weekly

"Hull shows a refreshing concern for the integrity of the line, exploring with daunting skill the pulse and clench of vowels and consonants with a rhythmic unity. . . . The breadth and scope of Hull's moral vision are what make her poems truly rare."---Harvard Book Review
