Willa Schneberg, Larkin Warren


"[Schneberg] will speak for us, hear us, know our secret trouble, our intimate imagery and behavior. She has the life-strength, curiosity, perception, language. To read her is to learn that we survive by caring for strangers. Willa Schneberg is a poet with healing power. I read her with gratitude."
—Milton Kessler

Additional Praise:

"This is the other side of the lullaby—equal parts reassurance and warning--the night world where the woman sleeps alone on old sheets, listening as the child listens, for the new and terrifying inflection of familiar sounds, foot-tap, pipe knock and something else: the enormous insistent music of her own waking, the aubade of her own voice."
