MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Years, Months, and Days "[Years, Months, and Days] is carried by Jernigan's obvious respect for her sponsoring material and by her superb ear." -The New York Times "Exquisite . . . deeply resonant . . . . There's often a metaphysical cast to her forthright observations, which makes them both evocative and poignant." -Toronto Star "Amanda Jernigan's small and beautiful book should be on your bedside table even if it is as heaped as mine. Just 4" by 5" and fewer than 70 pages, the book consists of untitled, spare, and simply-worded poems which evoke the cycles of life, the seasons, and human longing for meaning and connection. The poems expand in your head, opening your mind to matters beyond the day-to-day."-Arc Poetry Magazine "The poems are tiny, seeds only, bare of flourish, each containing the germ of an idea so large the mind can hardly hold it . . . . If you seek to tune those numbered days of yours to what is most frightfully vital, you might carry this book in your satchel awhile. It's tiny enough to conceal in a large pocket, but it thunders, and its seeds carry fields." -Image "Singular . . . stirring . . . invites pauses and contemplation. It is [Jernigan's] keen sense of what is essential that guides . . . these meditations." -Hamilton Review of Books "An elegant little book...Jernigan crafts pithy yet piercing poems that echo in the mind."-Canadian Literature "Vespers. Devotional. Breathtakingly sparse. Elegant. Wondrous. Moving. Rare." - Jeff Kirby, knife | fork | book
