A Stirring in the Dark

“Christina Lovin is unafraid of the muck and the rot of ditches and cellars in this fearless collection. She is unafraid to follow the dark flow to where things put down roots. It’s where, she understands, things stir and struggle to flower. She sees “the mysterious color of nothing special” and “the darkness full of radiance and resonance.” It’s a meticulous and unswerving vision of great scope. I admire the hunkering down as well as the alertness to the dark shapes’ meanings and “dreadful beauty.” She is an enduring witness. She keeps the faith for us.”
-Bruce Smith, author of Devotions, Songs for Two Voices, The Other Lover, Mercy Seat, Silver and Information, and The Common Wages.
