Here is what Los Angeles poet Suzanne Lummis had to say about the book:
“…the world as unpeeled orange” — the phrase shows up early in Alexandra Umlas’s lovely debut collection, and that brightness, promise and, also, sense of uneasy vulnerability, resonate through the pages that follow. A world as savory gift, a world laced with danger and trip-wired with tiny explosions, actual or threatened — they constitute the same world. And, though someone might suppose these poems rise from the environment of an “ordinary” life, in fact they stand as proof there is no such thing as an ordinary life, certainly not when shaped by this poet’s technical skill and embracing moral consciousness.
—Suzanne Lummis, author of Open 24 Hours
