MEDIA REVIEWS

"This collection explodes any idea of a linear history."--Studies in American Indian Literatures


"This innovative collection about assimilationist education uses primary texts and original verse to get inside the grief of Native people. It is a revelation as well as a ritual of condolence."--The Kansas City Star


"Drawing inspiration from the bureaucratic form and language of government reports, Glancy's poems give voice to the Native American children whose self-identity was dissolved inside the boarding school system."--World Literature Today


"'I am traveling with these old reports. / This bundle of voices in my throat, ' writes Diane Glancy in her stunning new book. In nine sections, through several reports and multiple voices and visions, the poet returns readers to signal events in the (reanimated) history of Native Americans and white colonizers in America."--Hilda Raz, author of What Happens
