"A fine-grained light like that of a nineteenth-century Danish landscape painting shimmers throughout these gorgeously tactile and tactful poems."--John Ashbery
"A heady heady brew--O'Hara conversation, Ashbery sophistication, Koch hilarity, Schuyler shapeliness, Guest adventures, Notley grain, Mayer utopia, Padgett whimsy, Oulipo oofs."--Bob Holman, National Poetry Series judge
Mlinko was hailed by Publishers Weekly as "one of the most exciting American poets under 40." Her Starred Wire reaches across continents of language where, as in Borges, dream logic dictates an interactive, delirious exploration of art and childhood, place and possibility.
Author of Matin es, Ange Mlinko lives in Brooklyn with her husband and young son.
