"Toi Derricotte's poems show us our underlife, tender and dreadful. And they are vibrant poems, poems in the voice of the living creature, the one who escaped--and paused, and turned back, and saw, and cried out. This is one of the most beautiful and necessary voices in American poetry today."
--Sharon Olds on Captivity
"Derricotte's words touch the reader as life has touched her, soul and body. This is a strong, sensuous, original, courageous book."
--Adrienne Rich on Captivity
"This is a personal, moving work about child abuse, racial 'passing, ' and women making art, and will attract all readers interested in these topics."
