"Kelly has a talent for coaxing out the world's ghosts and then fixing them in personal landscapes of fear and uncertainty....Smoothed by nuances of sound and rhythm, her poems exude an ambiguous wisdom, an acceptance of the sad magic that returns us constantly to the lives we might have led". -- Library Journal
