"Nance Van Winckel has long been one of my favorite poets—a voice I turn to again and again for imagery and music and to remind me of the loveliness and intensity of the subtle narrative woven into the subtle lyric. Pacific Walkers
shows her at the peak of her powers. It is a riveting book, accumulating in strangeness and fearsome magic as it moves through the mysteries of existence and mortality." —Laura Kasischke
Miami University Press, 2003
“Nance Van Winckel looks into the world’s shattered glass and animates the cultures, histories, human dispositions, and decontextualized landscapes found there. For those who celebrate Keats’s Negative Capability--haunting, reflective, discontinuous--lift this mirror and breathe upon it; from the silvery lake of mystery, light’s brief truth glints.”
