Reviews

"Ball gives her reader a world as complex as its characters, as challenging as the dichotomies humans create. Ball brings energy and humor to subject matter that is both complex and trivial, making Night Clerk at the Hotel of Both Worlds a book worth sleeping in."
--Crab Orchard Review
"Navigates nimbly between narrative and language and mapping the bright territory in which imagination suffuses the mundane. Droll, allusive, plaintive in an ironic pitch, Ball's lyrics defy reader expectations as they develop, dodging and burning to create vibrant sound patches and images."
--The Hollins Critic

"--Crab Orchard Review"
" 'I want to be you, ' says a poem in "Night Clerk at the Hotel of Both Worlds," Achilles, Apollinaire, Baudelaire, Beethoven, Breton, Borges, Byron, Coleridge, Cortez, de Chirico, Freud, Garcia Ma rquez, Guillaume, Kipling, Magellan, Marilyn Monroe, Menelaus, John Stuart Mill, Rimbaud, Larry Rivers, Sartre, Tolstoy, Pancho Villa, Wordsworth, and a few stellar others meet in the surprising pages of this desperately beautiful book. Thereafter they're free to mingle ever more strangely in one's newly ignited imagination."
--Dara Wier
" At once literary and conversational, enigmatic and lucid, exuberant and wounded, these nimble poems wed the world of imagination to the world of experience. Every jaunty line explodes in at least two directions: devilishly up into the mind; ardently down into the heart."
--Terrance Hayes
