Reviews

“Ana Maria Caballero’s poems take us inside a wild and fierce intellect that, like a house, is on its surface well-ordered and welcoming. Beyond that manicured outward appearance, however, lies the complexity of its domestic life, a life that Caballero explores with an enviable amount of courage”.
P. SCOTT CUNNINGHAM
Creator, O,Miami Poetry Festival
“Nursing, peeing, death, getting drunk, and turning the lights down—Ana Maria Caballero finds wonderful poetry in both prosaic and transcendent moments of motherhood, marriage, life”.
WILLIAM EATON
Editor, Zeteo
“Ana Maria Caballero’s new collection is a celebration of diminishing innocence and growing wisdom that is indicative of mid-life. Touching upon tenderness, motherhood, anguish and partnership, these poems are as rhythmic as the moods of a newborn child ...”.
