"These poems boldly ask how we define a self, a marriage, and a family via eerie and frightening worlds. We Are Reckless is a dazzling debut." -Hadara Bar-Nadav, author of The New Nudity


"I love the wild curiosity of this book, its attention to the off-kilter, the liminal, the often unseen and unacknowledged. I love the way nothing is beneath the notice of these searching, pulsing, vibrantly alive poems." -Kasey Jueds, author of Keeper and The Thicket
