The Glass Book, Valerie Fox’s latest collection of brilliant poetry, scintillates a surrealism juxtaposed with a perfectly clear and grounded sensibility. An accident has to be somebody’s fault. Maybe, Dietrich straddles silent pictures and talkies hypnotically, but Fox is an acrobat, a high wire act, who is able to straddle and hold onto flashes of images and words, hypnotically, seemingly effortlessly; she risks but doesn’t fall, she never fails her readers. She startles and delights with a highly developed sense of humor, of deep-rooted truth. Fox’s work is as ‘normal,’ and as accessible and substantial as Bertha Palermo’s noodles and as unexpected as a fish disaster in your toaster oven.

This work is no ephemeral thing.
