From the Inside Flap
"Erin Noteboom's is an elemental poetry of bones, salt, water, dust, and at the same time a celebration of all things as holy. In these arias of praise and prayer, her gift is to flare the ordinary detail as well as the extraordinary event into vision, meaning, and the magnification of spirit." Jane Hirshfield
"The praise, the hymn, the humility wrestling with the lover's urge for God, the absolute feel for the flesh and blood of the mystics, the prophets and those simply redeemed in frailty; Noteboom writes the finest theophanic poetry being written in this country." Pier Giorgio Di Cicco
