Praise for Eastlake Cleaners When Quality & Price Count [a romance]:"As Janet Norman Knox advises us about her lyrical heroine: 'She knows where dragons live. / Some migratory, others resident. / She visits their nests.' The nests of verbal beauty on the pages of this book will stay with readers for a long time. This is true poetry, exciting and imaginative in its scope, muscular and memorable in its verbal music. It is memorable because it is dares to go places we haven't heard of, and do so with grace that is wild, yes, but also heart-rendering. There is much play in this sequence of poems, all of it earned and felt through, delivered with precision and clarity. I love her poems." ~ Ilya Kaminsky
Chapbook to be published in Fall 2007.
