“Few writers have either the courage or the capacity for specificity that is required to tell the complex truth of a family’s immense cruelties, or its fragile loves. In Wine-Dark Mother and the Trapper’s Son, Churchill-Dicks reminds us of the fact that in Jewish tradition, witness is an active verb; a difficult praxis and a real action toward reconstituting the world and making whole what was scattered. In these poems’ reconstitution of memory, soul, and family, we are enabled to more fiercely and truly witness our own.”
