What a terrible, difficult, contradictory world we’re living in. Thank god we have Jane Satterfield’s beautifully conceived, beautifully executed poems to guide us.

From her brilliant debut collection, Shepherdess With an Automatic, to this remarkable new collection, Apocalypse Mix, Jane Satterfield has offered her readers some of the most lyrically graceful and historically reflective collections in American poetry.

Satterfield’s poetry enacts what one of the powerful prose poems here calls “this angel’s transmission across time and space”—and we readers are the beneficiaries.
—RACHEL HADAS
