"No two people deal with loss in exactly the same way, which is one reason why Priscilla Long's "Crossing Over: Poems" is so remarkable. . . . In writing out her grief over her sister's suicide, her emotions universally resonate with the reader. Through interlocking themes and images, she articulates what it means to come to terms with the past in order to move forward into the future."--"The Hooch"
"Priscilla Long curates the places of her heart--shows them to us and leaves them safe. . . . She upturns language from patriotic statements, and joins the ranks of Mary Oliver and Louise Gluck as celebrators of local nature."--"The Seattle Star""
"Long presents a collection of poems that explores deeper aspects of Pacific Northwest, interlacing elegies, including for her deceased sister, with our dreamy landscapes. She uses bridges as metaphors to evoke the world around us."--"The Seattle Times"
