Praise

Praise

This world is a better place because of Sonia Sanchez: more livable, more laughable, more manageable. I wish millions of people knew that some of the joy in their lives comes from the fact that Sonia Sanchez is writing poetry. —Maya Angelou

"An unending elegy on the grandest of scales." —Rafael Campo, The Washington Post Book World

"Only a poet with an innocent heart can exorcise so much pain with so much beauty." —Isabel Allende

"With an unblinking and critical poet's eye, Sonia Sanchez has been setting her readers straight, telling the 'terrible beauty,' and reflecting images in ways that simultaneously solicit tears and laughter. For over thirty years this revolutionary poet has been undeterred from a path that began in the sixties. She has not given up the struggle to let her poetry be what she refers to as a 'call to arms' for her people." —Juanita Johnson-Bailey, Ms.

"[Sanchez] looks deeply into that most dangerous of places-the heart." —-Quarterly Black Review
