The personal and public intertwine in a beautiful blur ... These sharp poems invite consideration about how our modern society makes us 'a person dragged away from personhood.' And it’s all an utter delight.
Prikryl continues to travel circuitously within her unique landscape. These 67 poems, each with a single-word title, do not reveal themselves casually; close attentiveness is needed ... Her poetry is exacting and tough, yet compassionate and solicitous ... Prikryl’s focus elegantly pivots in and out of hushed encounters in poems that, with careful reading, gracefully astound.
... a playful and melancholy reordering of everyday life in the metropolis ... arguably not for readers new to poetry; this is challenging work even perhaps for veteran bibliophiles, but that's a good thing. These are poems of urban spaces unstuck in time and known to few ... Prikryl gives the interested party a chance to explore them and experience something new. This is a book of ordinary moments turned into catastrophe, where leisurely walks down the streets become literally explosive. A superb feat of insight that shouldn't be missed by those with a taste for something bold.
