The Judas Ear

"Anna Journey's lines echo like lines of a song. The final word is 'blooming.' The poems are big, rangy, expansive in Whitmanesque, democratic ways. They have a narrative charisma, but maintain Dickinson's perversity, independence. Journey is as much a poet as a storyteller. Few write with her variety of emotional, intellectual, and musical muscle. This is simply a masterful collection of poems."

— Terrance Hayes, author of American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin
