Recent Reviews

“This is not a white-washed collection of lyric-narratives—rather, Mueller’s work enacts historical-poetic recovery. Mary’s Dust is a stay against that particularly American vice contemporary historians discuss: amnesia...”

Hannah VanderHartUp the Staircase on "Mary's Dust"

“ The girls and women of these poems, both the speakers and the subjects, create the world by enticing readers to “unlace this alchemous beast/ with me.” As readers, we at once admire and feel ourselves drawn into this worldview. The best eco-poetry as well as ecofeminism grounds us, making us acutely aware of not just the body and place, but how we are entwined, with and not separate from nature.”

Daniel CaseyTupelo Quarterly on "Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts"

“Zeller and DeBacker present a visual jigsaw puzzle, one that ultimately paints a scene of a roaring and whispering beast alongside a “sweet girl made of March light through a seed pod,” alongside watercolor hummingbirds, and hammers for heads—a book of undeniable strangeness. It delves without fear, or, rather, with a reasonably wild fear, into our increasingly unpredictable climate situation and our currently harrowing political climate.”

Tor StrandHigh Desert Journal on "Alchemy for Cells & Other Beasts"

“This work is like a textbook of how to write about one’s poetics in a way that is serious, accurate, and engaging. Old poets thinking to write their memoirs and young ones to assert their own poetics should take notice.”
