"With a delicate exactitude Karen Shenfeld evokes place and people widely separated in time and space. Her impressive collection has a cumulative power that arises from her skill in delineating the realms of memory and experience, both personal and familiar, in a voice that is at once intimate and compelling. Her lyrics are clear-sighted and full of tenderness for their subjects. The lines of her poems, spare and beautiful, create (in her own words) 'a procession of figures' that lingers and echoes long afterward in the reader's memory." -- Eric Ormsby.
