Her first book of poems, Satan Says, was praised in the highest terms. Hugh Seidman wrote, I am simply astonished in poem after poem... It is pure talent. Marilyn Hacker called it a daring and elegant first book. This is a poetry which affirms and redeems the art. This new book presents a beautifully realized cycle of poems beginning with those that honor the dead, then poems that burrow into childhood, limning the unforgettable; and culminating in poems for the living, moving outward toward love, marriage, children, toward the tasting, and the giving of life. Larry Levis says, The Dead and the Living is an unignorable book, something truly rare. The feeling behind it is painful, but exquisitely so. Pain made into art or what, in another time, people called beauty. It is the achievement of a young poet writing in the full measure of her powers. Book jacket.
