“At once analytic and passionate, In the Body of Our Lives draws us, with acute emotional precision, into the physical and the tangible in a world increasingly obsessed with the virtual. Jeanne Wagner explores with great skill and feeling the dichotomy of mind/body dualism. ‘No one can touch the dark fruit / of your interior,’ she writes, addressing the body, in ‘A Dialogue with the Body.’ ‘Impression: Sunrise,’ based on the Claude Monet painting of the same name, shares in the bodily trope, the sun in this poem becoming ‘a perfect circle of retinal fire, / / kindling the sky, bleeding into / the water like a round heart.’ This collection is a stunningly beautiful and seamlessly nuanced account of what it means to live in our own bodies as well as in the body of our lives.”
— Carol Frith

“Christina Hutchins’s The Stranger Dissolves is an exquisite debut volume. This superb collection is elegant, impassioned, and consistently wise in its reckonings. Few poets so carefully embody the mind’s oscillations during reflection, and the beauty of Christina Hutchins’s poems is simply beyond measure. More than any first collection I know, The Stranger Dissolves melds both mind (intelligence and thought) and heart with a startling complexity, intricacy, and intimacy. This is a volume to keep at one’s bedside.”
—David St. John
