Rapture [is] alert to the work of living with the past and present of a family and armed with ecstatic language. . . . This is a deeply psychological book about the body’s ecstasies and failings, about the tension between the self that wants to be autonomous and the impulse to love another and give up fantasies of independence. Forgiveness is how the poems acknowledge the world: forgiveness, the act of responding honestly to forces that make love difficult, which paradoxically creates the possibility of a loving future. . . . This is a fine debut indeed.”The Los Angeles Review
