Reviews by Bookery Staff and friends
"A star soprano, dazzling the audience with range....With this book, Ackerman is at the height of her powers articulating important themes and concerns of the day, using myriad forms...and not shying away from celebration, wit, image, or humor-- all the while employing a diction amazing in its scope ...without sounding forced, contrived, or obscure. Clearly, the new and selected work of Jaguar will resound for years to come. --Southern Humanities Review

"Diane Ackerman is the great dramatist and explorer of the sensual world; her poems probe, open, take off lids, peel back covers, taste, sniff. There is no limit to her curiosity, and she is constantly discovering surprises." -- The New York Times Book Review
