“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.
“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.
“This is a book to relish for such insights, by a poet clearly up for the ride, and not afraid of the risks.” — Rhina Espaillat, author of Where Horizons Go
