    Last week I had a dream where I gave away anything, then sat down in my house to think long and hard. The next morning I walked into a bookshop, picked up some poetry that I had never heard of and opened the page randomly at a poem entitled, "The Year I Got Rid of Everything". Reading it seemed a direct evocation of my dream - "a dress made of bones", dancing in the great emptiness. So, dear reader, I bought it. I couldn't just leave it in the shop.Chase Twichell's poetry is limpid and bewitchin [...]

    Spare but haunting poems reflective of Buddhist practice and an alert, probing mind. Some of the poems are subtly disturbing, hinting of dark times in the author's past, but others are hopeful and insightful. Twichell manages to convey a poetic persona that is both probing and playful. Overall, a crisp and bracing read.

    We're used to seeing Zen written of in the way of the Beat poets. Chase Twichell has opened another path in this superb book. I can't think of a better poet conveying the actual experience of entering practice. Perhaps because Twichell is first a poet--the subject matter here is particular, but the sheer talent is what lets her write about Zen overtly in a way that is not ponderous, didactic, or imitative of either the Beats or the classical Buddhist poets of Japan, Korea, and China.

    Quite simply, this is my favorite book of poetry. Bar none. I've read it countless times and will undoubtedly read it countless more. Twichell writes exceptionally spare and beautiful poems using thought and imagery from Buddhism, the natural world, and the very personal.

    Sometimes so clear and perceptive, it took my breath away. A dark, empty, yet somehow hopeful book of poems to savour.
