From the Selection Committee:

“This is poetry that could only be poetry — it has real wit as well as sensuousness. Ms. Thompson is a true visionary poet. So wild and strange and brilliant, this poetry is alive — filled with the sense of a part-human, part-Other intelligence, curious, questing. Also astonishing is the bright, clear gaze — like being in the presence of the oracle.”
