    2. There were several striking poems and lines of language, but not as many as I would have hoped After reading her poem, Stays jillalexanderessbaum wI fell in love with her poetry, and I likely did not give this book the attention that it deserved I do very much appreciate her continued questions and musing on Adam and Eve, the creation, and the nature of God.


    3. i d really like to give this 3.5 stars a tidy, clever exploration of religion and sex and self not cutesy or preachy, which are huge pluses also not much here that i found truly surprising or inspiring though still enough verbal and intellectual interest to bump it up the half star successful religious writing.



    4. These poems are beautifully crafted and felt, which is rare Most times poems are one or the other This is the best goddamn book of poetry I ve read in a long ass while.


    5. I was given this book by the author herself I think Jill is amazing with her words Of course I may be slightly biased considering she was my English professor
