In The Throne of Psyche, Marly Youmans sweeps back and forth between what is human and what is other, binding the two together or crossing the thresholds between them. A prize-winning writer of stories and novels, she pursues tales both otherworldly and earthy with passion and formal power in this eighth book, her second collection of poetry.

Such metamorphoses and broodings on the door ajar between human and other remind us that Marly Youmans is "the best-kept secret among contemporary American writers. She writes like an angel an angel who has learned what it is to be human" (John Wilson, Books & Culture).
