Crow Song, by Zoe Keithley

Zoe Keithley

…Gentle yet fiercely sculpted poems…Hers is not a well-known voice, but one that exudes experience as well as unapologetic passion.—C. Michael Curtis,  Fiction Editor, The Atlantic Monthly

It’s the whole gamut… the sensuality, the mystery, and the sacredness of every day experience…These poems reach directly into the poetry of her readers’ lives.—Chicago poet Anne Schultz, The Unicorn and the Judge

Her poetic task is to redeem the family and the lost places of childhood, and, in this book’s final poems, to redefine spiritual longing as love. –Dennis Schmitz, former Sacramento Poet Laureate.
