MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Sky Is Shooting Blue Arrows is filled with such a vivid and tactile sense of place--New Mexico, Turkey, the Black Hills--each poem is a bodily pleasure. The Sky Is Shooting Blue Arrows is a place you must visit, a journey you will be glad you took, a book you must read."--Jesse Lee Kercheval, author of Cinema Muto


"Glenna Luschei, writing in her ninth decade of life, has reached a place of hard-won peace. 'We have to deal / with getting old / while the soul is always young, ' she writes. She faces many deaths: those of her parents, her lover, even her daughter. 'I lose everything, as it's meant to be.' This poet shows us how love is infinite though the people we love are not, and though we ourselves must die. With grace, intelligence, and humor, this poet sings of the essence of life."--Peggy Shumaker, author of Gnawed Bones
