 About the Book 

“Hopper’s lines halt, knot, interdigitate, and stutter, but they never flinch. She leaves that to the reader. What she doesn’t offer us are easy epiphanies, a bid for being a good caucasian, or post-race snake oil. This is difficult work for a timeMore“Hopper’s lines halt, knot, interdigitate, and stutter, but they never flinch. She leaves that to the reader. What she doesn’t offer us are easy epiphanies, a bid for being a good caucasian, or post-race snake oil. This is difficult work for a time when “any touch/will bruise”. Dark~Sky Society insists we reach and be reached anyway. —Douglas Kearney“Dark~Sky Society does not see its own bravery. It does not draw attention to its confrontation... And it does not apologize. The poems implicate themselves, and in turn implicate anyone who has ever dared to wonder, How and why does our world work in this way?” ----Jen Fitzgerald
