“In Gods of Water and Air, Rachel Dacus turns a painterly eye onto both the nooks
and crannies of our world — ‘hints of rose madder in the cerulean,’ a palm tree’s
‘rigid, rattling arguments’ — and ‘the blue immensity’ that holds us all.
– Molly Fisk, author of Blow-Drying a Chicken.
“Rachel Dacus’ new book is as deliciously diverse as it is spellbinding.”
– Mark Blickley, Playwright and author of Sacred Misfits.
“Dacus’ book will invite you to journey with her through adventures
in art museums, pie baking, and eagle-spotting.”
– Jeannine Hall Gailey, author of She Returns to the Floating World.
