  • "Paula Cisewski loves language. Language and metaphor in the face of human heartbreak and desire. 'I am now prepared / to feel my way down the dark sides…' she writes, 'And still, we flew.' Language and metaphor in the face of loneliness and sorrow. 'A trainwreck,' she writes, 'that for eternity never / happens is perfect because / the brakes fail and fail and / still it smokes down / tracks that run through / a small town in me.' Such a refreshing, distinctive first book of poems."  --Ralph …
  • Selected for the Nightboat Poetry Prize by Franz Wright, Nightboat Books, 2010 "Paula Cisewski says 'Kiss my pathos,' and that's exactly what you want to do when you read this book. Her personal city -- Ghost Fargo -- is part American dystopia, part formal experiment, and an emotionally vivid interior landscape. When I read her I feel like she's talking to me; her voice is hilarious, sad and clear." --Matthew Rohrer
