OCTOBER 2016 - OCTOBER 2018   

“Beware Kim Dower’s poetry. Again and again, this crafty writer invites you in for a casual chat and then wallops you. . . I Wore This Dress Today for You, Mom. This fantastic collection revolves around quotidian details of domestic life, but existential questions are always lurking beneath the surface.”
—The Washington Post

“Widely admired for her ability to texturize the everyday with the sublime, Kim Dower captures with poetic grace exquisite remembrances of childhood with vibrant imagery. These gorgeous gems are energized by the sheer power of her wit and irreverent style.”

“Dower's poetry is deftly constructed, inherently interesting, impressively insightful, thought-provoking, and truly memorable.”
—The Midwest Book Review

“Dower’s poetry speaks in the voice of an old, trusted friend who knows you, who has come to visit and remind you of who you are and what a life is all about. They speak not of the highs and lows, but about the grey space between tragedy and tenderness, memory and loss, fragility and perseverance—that space where the soul and the truest self live.”
—Richard Blanco, Presidential Inaugural Poet

“Unexpected and sublime.”
—O Magazine

“. . . a moving blend of sexual experimentation and loss.”
—Library Journal
