Reviews

"Rosnau's narrative is sewn tightly into these verses with the perspective of a novelist joined with the skill of an experienced poet," Elee Kraljii Gardiner, The Ormsby Review

--Elee Kraljii Gardiner "The Ormsby Review "

"These poems have a strength that reminds me of poets whose work anticipates Rosnau's in different ways, beginning with Pat Lowther, Leona Gom and Kristjana Gunnars, and eventually including Stephanie Bolster and Roo Borson. Our Familiar Hunger is a shimmering achievement. It reaches for a story we do not hear enough, but need to hear." John Lent, Arc Poetry Magazine
