"In the extraordinary work of The Book of Light she [Clifton] flies higher and strikes deeper than ever. Poem after poem exhilarates and inspires awe at the manifestation of such artistic and spiritual power...One of the most authentic and profound living American poets."-Denise Levertov "Clifton's latest collection clearly demonstrates why she was twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. These poems contain all the simplicity and grace readers have come to expect from her work."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) Other titles by Lucille Clifton from Consortium: Blessing the Boats: New and Selected Poems 1988-2000 (BOA Editions), 1-880238-88-8 PB 1-880238-87-X HC Good Woman (BOA Editions), 0-918526-59-0 PB Next (BOA Editions), 0-918526-61-2 PB Quilting (BOA Editions), 0-918526-81-7 PB terrible stories (BOA Editions), 1-880238-37-3 PB 1-880238-36-5 HC
