Light to Light by Kate McNairy



“Kate McNairy’s poems carry inside them the mayhem of love and the aftermath, which is solitude.  I hear a wolf howling underneath their matter-of-fact minimalism.”

–Henri Cole



Kate McNairy’s Light to Light is composed of seemingly simple and straightforward poems which, on closer examination, are far more complex, intelligent, and moving than they at first appear to be. They remind me of Chinese poetry in their compression, the moods they evoke, and their evocation of light, darkness, and the vagaries of love.”

–Wyn Cooper
